On the evening just before the Fourth of July, FIFA was queen.
The Women’s World Cup game between Sweden and the Netherlands brought FOX Sports a comfortable win for the night, grabbing a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was followed by another FOX Sports entry from Jamaica vs. the USA in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, which itself brought in a 0.5. Bravo rounded out the top 3 for the night with “Southern Charm,” which, at 0.3, was down one-tenth of a point from its usual score.
Elsewhere, “Married at First Sight” was unaffected by the dearth of sports coverage, maintaining a 0.3 on Lifetime. VH1’s “Basketball Wives” landed just below the series when it tumbled from 0.4 to 0.3, while HGTV’s “Property Brothers: Forever Home” matched them there after clawing its way up from 0.2. “House Hunters” on the same network and “Forged in Fire” on History both maintained 0.3’s, and “Guy’s Grocery Games” of Food Network recovered from 0.2 to 0.3.
“House Hunters International” faltered from 0.3 to 0.2, breaking ranks with its flagship series and falling in with “My 600-lb Life” on TLC, which was once again down from 0.3 to 0.2. “Queen Sugar” and “Lone Star Justice” brought in consecutive 0.2’s for OWN and Investigation Discovery, respectively. “Catfish” and “Are You the One?” did the same with their own 0.2’s for MTV, as did “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” for TBS.
