Scoreboard CBS ABC NBC FOX CW
Total Viewers (million) 6.41 5.05 4.78 3.47 0.74
rating/Share: Adults 18-49 1.5/5 1.5/5 1.4/4 1.6/5 0.3/1

Another lightly viewed Sunday night saw CBS atop the viewership race with an average of only 6.41 million lead by 60 Minutes and the premiere of Big Brother 10 beating mostly rerun competition in their time slots.

Fox reruns, even weighed down by 'Til Death, managed to win the adults 18-49 demo crown with a 1.6 rating / 5 share.

NBC suffered from a series of slip ups. Jim Cramer's broadcast prime-time American Dream, was hardly dreamy [note the second half drop off below], and the Miss Universe pageant ratings look to be following their long term trend downwards, as Miss USA slipped again herself.
