Sunday’s ratings were largely a repeat of the previous week’s, with “Big Brother” earning a fairly comfortable victory among adults 18-49.
“Big Brother” drew a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic, even with the previous week. Several other originals were also steady with last Sunday, including all of ABC’s game shows and “American Grit” (0.4) on FOX. “Candy Crush” took another hit for CBS, falling three tenths of a point to 0.5. It’s lost more than half of its premiere rating in the subsequent two weeks.
An unusually long, caution-filled NASCAR race on NBC ate up two hours of primetime. “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” is currently at 0.5, pending updates, as is the first hour of the “Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge” finale. “Spartan” ran until midnight ET.

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.
