Final broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017
“Big Brother” adjusted up from Sunday’s early ratings to the finals after accounting for its off-the-clock start time. The show, which was pushed back 19 minutes in much of the country thanks to CBS’ live coverage of the PGA Championship, adjusted up 0.3 in adults 18-49 to a 1.9 rating. That’s in line with its season average.
The Teen Choice Awards adjusted down a tenth to 0.5 on FOX, even with the 2016 awards. Reruns of “The Simpsons” and “Bob’s Burgers” also adjusted down, as did “60 Minutes” (1.0) on CBS and an “America’s Funniest Home Videos” repeat on ABC.
Note: Final numbers for the PGA Championship overrun on CBS weren’t available. Its fast national ratings are marked with an asterisk in the chart below and aren’t included in the CBS network average for the night.
Upward adjustments in adults 18-49 are in blue; downward adjustments are in red.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
