RATINGS RAT RACE: ‘Big Brother’ Up, ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ Hits New Low, ‘Whodunnit’ & Crossing Lines’ Even

The first Sunday after the July 4 holiday saw primetime originals on every network except Fox. The biggest kid on the block was Big Brother (2.1/6). With some of last week’s online controversy addressed on air, the vet reality series was up 11% from its June 30 broadcast. The highest-rated show on the Big 4 last night was also the second-highest-rated Big Brother episode this season behind its 2.2 from the June 26 premiere. Big Brother was the second-most-watched show Sunday night with 6.25 million viewers; a 60 Minutes encore at 7 PM was the most watched overall with 7.55 million viewers. According to preliminary results, the second-highest-rated show Sunday was Fox’s Family Guy (1.7/5) repeat at 9 PM. Overall, CBS and Fox tied for the top spot in adults 18-49 with both scoring a 1.2/4. Among total viewers, CBS was No. 1 with 5.426 million watching.
