Ratings: 'Big Brother' Wins Night, 'Taxi Brooklyn' Rises


Fast national ratings are in for Wednesday night, and CBS’ summer juggernaut Big Brother easily topped all other new programs on Wednesday.

Big Brother‘s first Veto competition and ceremony show managed to attract 5.6 million total viewers and a 1.8 in the demo, down 22 percent from last week’s season premiere. The good news, Wednesday’s Big Brother was up a tenth over last year’s Fourth of July weekend-adjacent Wednesday outing.

Here are how the night’s other new episodes faired:

Fox:  In Fox’s only new outing of the night, an all new So You Think You Can Dance attracted 4 million total viewers and a 1.3 in the demo, falling ten percent in total viewers and shedding a tenth of its demo.

NBC: NBC’s newest summer series Taxi Brooklyn managed to add a few viewers this week. Wednesday’s new episode brought in 5.4 million total viewers and a 1.1 in the demo, up slightly in total viewers and a tenth in the adults 18-49 age demo. Also worth noting, NBC’s rerun of America’s Got Talent managed to attract the nights largest audience with 6.3 million viewers. Wednesday’s America’s Got Talent rerun also earned a 1.4 in the demo, topping both Taxi Brooklyn and Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance. 

Fun Fact: With the Fourth of July weekend quickly approaching, television viewership among adults 18-49 was down four percent from last Wednesday night.
