-Total Viewers:
CBS: 3.38 million, ABC: 2.75, NBC: 2.04, Fox: 621,000, CW: 315,000

-Adults 18-49:
ABC and CBS: 0.3 rating/3 share, NBC and Fox: 0.2/ 2 each, CW: 0.1/ 1

Veteran “Big Brother” on CBS topped the night in adults 18-49, with a 0.6 rating/6 share in the demo in the Sunday 8 p.m. ET hour. That was one-tenth of a rating point ahead of ABC’s competing “Celebrity Family Feud” (0.5/ 5). But “Celebrity Family Feud” led in total viewers with 3.88 million (versus 3.31 million for “Big Brother”). Needless to say, there is not much you can say when the most-watched series of the night does not even reach 4-million viewers.

In week two news was ABC game show “The Final Straw”, which scored a modest 2.45 million viewers (#1t) and a 0.3/ 3 in adults 18-49 (#1t) at 9 p.m. That led into 3.02 million viewers (#1) and a 0.3/ 4 in the demo (#1) for “The $100,000 Pyramid” at 10 p.m. ABC would be wise if it flipped the time periods of “The Last Straw” and “Celebrity Family Feud.”

The only other original programs of the night were NBC ancestry series “Who Do You Think You Are?” (Viewers: #2, 1.98 million; A18-49: #2t, 0.2/ 2 at 7 p.m.) and The CW’s “Riverdale” (Viewers: #5, 279,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 1 at 8 p.m.), which concludes next season.
