For the third straight week, “Big Brother” was the no. 1 show in the Sunday primetime ratings.

The CBS reality-competition series led the night with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.29 million viewers, steady with its Sunday night broadcast from a week ago. “Instinct” (0.3) stayed similarly even week-to-week, as did “The Good Fight” (0.2).

However, despite CBS having the night’s highest-rated broadcast, it was ABC that scored the overall primetime win Sunday night. “Celebrity Family Feud” kicked off the night for the network with a 0.7 rating – down two-tenths from the 0.9 it scored last week. Thanks to that downtick though, “The $100,000 Pyramid” managed to beat its “Celebrity Family Feud” lead-in, raking in the same 0.8 as its last outing.

Pending updates, “To Tell the Truth” ticked up one-tenth from its previous episode’s 0.6 final rating. Combined, the three shows gave ABC the night’s highest demo and total viewer averages.

Elsewhere, FOX’s “What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage” capped off another night of mostly repeats for FOX, and scored a 0.3 at 9:30 p.m. – back up one-tenth from its 0.2 last week. The CW’s “Burden of Truth” held steady with another 0.1.

NBC took the night off, airing only “America’s Got Talent,” “Bring the Funny,” and “New Amsterdam” reruns.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 0.7/4 0.5/3 0.4/2 0.3/2 0.1/0
Total Viewers (millions) 4.46 4.29 2.31 1.01 0.38


: 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.
