It’s no surprise that¬†Big Brother¬†continues to dominate as the head of household when it comes to broadcast network primetime ratings. The CBS reality series boasted a season high in viewers Sunday, earning a season-ratings-high 1.3 in the adults 18-49 demographic and 5.04 million sets of eyeballs. At Fox, the network’s NFL’s preseason slate kicked off with the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings, with the game scoring a solid 1.1 rating and 4.36 million viewers.

For now, Fox finished No. 1 in the demo for the night, though that number may be adjusted in the finals numbers.

CBS won in total viewers, with its recently canceled Instinct having a good night with back-to-back shows. The first hour (0.5, 3.59M) saw a two-tenths boost for the drama compared with last week, while the second hour (0.3, 3.07M) slipped but was even with a week ago.

ABC’s slate of game shows featured Celebrity Family Feud (0.8, 4.96M), which was even, but tenths dips for The $100,000 Pyramid (0.6, 4.35M) and To Tell the Truth (0.5, 3.38M) to season lows.
