Broadcast Live +3 ratings, Aug. 8-14: All Olympics, all the time

olympics-ratings-aug-11-16

The Summer Olympics was far and away highest-rated programming in the same-day ratings for Aug. 8-14, and that didn’t change after three days of DVR viewing.

The Olympics take the Top 7 spots in both adults 18-49 and total viewers for the week. All three episodes of “Big Brother” tied for the top spot among non-sports shows at 2.3 in the 18-49 demo and finished eighth through 10th in viewers.

Because there is less original programming summer, rankings will cut off at gains of 0.2 in adults 18-49 and 250,000 viewers. That may result in fewer than 25 entries in some cases.
