Ratings Breakdown:
It was not all that impressive given the hype. But the series debut of “BH90210” on Fox topped this first Wednesday in August with a 3.3 rating/6 share in the household overnights from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, this bested competing “Big Brother” on CBS (#2: 2.9/ 5) by 14 percent and it increased from lead-in “MasterChef” (#1: 2.9/ 6 at 8 p.m.) also by 14 percent. Since most new series drop 10 to 20 percent in week two, let’s see what happens next week…and beyond.

Also debuting last night were two series on The CW: Crime solver “Bulletproof” (#5: 0.7/ 1 at 8 p.m.) and reality hour “Hypnotize Me” (#5: 0.4/ 1 at 9 p.m.).
