Broadcast Live +3 ratings, Aug. 29-Sept. 4: ‘Big Brother,’ college football, ‘AGT’ lead

big-brother-l3-ratings-sept-4-16

The Sunday edition of “Big Brother” made the biggest ratings gains with three days delayed viewing in the week of Aug. 29-Sept. 4.

The show made the biggest jump in both adults 18-49 (1.4 to 2.1, +0.7) and viewers, adding 1.65 million to its same-day total.

ABC’s Sunday college football broadcast (3.3) remains tops overall in adults 18-49, while the Tuesday “America’s Got Talent” (13.87 million) has the most Live +3 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.
