CBS: 3.4/ 6, ABC: 2.9/ 5, NBC: 1.3/ 2, Fox: 1.2/ 2, CW: 0.4/ 1

-Ratings Scorecard:
The home of “Big Brother,” CBS, topped the evening, with the perennial reality/competition flat from the year-ago evening at a 3.9 rating/7 share in the household overnights from 9-10 p.m. For those worried about “Big Brother’s” future, don’t be. The traditional Nielsen ratings and social media attention warrant a renewal.

On ABC, “The Match Game” closed its season with a second-place 3.0/ 5 at 9 p.m., which led out of an encore telecast of “Celebrity Family Feud” at a 3.5/ 6 (#2) at 8 p.m. At 10 p.m. on the alphabet net was the likely series finale of freshman drama at a modest 2.1/ 4 in the hour, which actually finished first against encore telecasts of competing “S.W.A.T.” on CBS (#2: 1.9/ 3) and “Law & Order: SVU” on NBC (#3: 1.3/ 2).

The remainder of the evening were all repeat telecasts.
