Wednesday Final Nationals: ‘Big Brother 19’ Premiere on CBS Dominates Night’s Key Demos

The nineteenth season premiere of “Big Brother” propelled CBS to Wednesday night victory among total viewers (5.1 million), adults 18-49 (1.4 rating/6 share), adults 18-34 (1.0/6) and adults 25-54 (1.7/6).

Although its premiere viewership hit a 5-year low for the series (based on Live Plus Same Day data) — and was runner-up to NBC’s “Little Big Shots: Forever Young” for the most-watched telecast of the night, “Big Brother 19” was easily prime time’s No. 1 show in all key demographics. The margins were 70 percent higher than the second-largest telecast in adults 18-49 (Fox’s “MasterChef”), at least 44 percent higher than the second-largest telecast in adults 18-34 (Adult Swim’s 10:30 “Bob’s Burgers”), and 62 percent more than the closest shows in adults 25-54 (NBC’s “Little Big Shots: Forever Young” and Fox’s “MasterChef” each).

Prime time half-hour breakdowns for “Big Brother 19” in household rating/share and total viewers (adults 18-34, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 rating/share), were as follows:

8:00 3.8/8, 6.260 million (1.3/9, 1.8/9, 2.2/9)

8:30 3.4/7, 5.758 million (1.3/8, 1.7/8, 2.1/8)

9:00 3.4/7, 5.860 million (1.3/7, 1.8/7, 2.1/7)

9:30 3.3/6, 5.654 million (1.2/6, 1.7/7, 2.1/7)

  1. I know you like Big Brothers Marc but I just cannot get into that show. I have tried and just flip the channel..

  2. Do you have Friday Night Tykes at 11 am on Esquire Network please? It was the last show that aired on the Cable Network.
