It was another solid outing for ABC’s Summer Fun & Games lineup, as they carried ABC to an overall victory over the other networks in the Sunday primetime ratings this week.

“Celebrity Family Feud” kicked off the night for ABC with a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49, up one-tenth from its previous 0.8, and raked in its largest audience (5.5 million viewers) since its season premiere. “The $100,000 Pyramid” fared less well week-to-week, ticking down from the 0.8 it scored last Sunday to a 0.7, while “To Tell the Truth” similarly fell from a 0.7 to a 0.6.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Big Brother” led the night once again, rising from its 1.0 a week ago to a 1.1 this time around – its best Sunday night rating of the season so far. “Instinct” (0.3) and “The Good Fight” (0.2) stayed even with their previous episodes.

On the CW, the season 2 finale of “Burden of Truth” posted a 0.1, steady with its last outing, and scored its largest audience of the season (612,000 viewers). Meanwhile, “What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage” ticked down from a 0.3 to a 0.2, capping off a night of comedy reruns on FOX.

: 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.
