Big Brother 20 ratings for Episode 24 have come in from August 19. The Sunday night installment revealed to CBS viewers who had won the HOH Endurance Competition and who they nominated for eviction.

CBS has easily been winning the 8/7c time slot on Sunday evenings and that continued with the August 19 episode of Big Brother. Not only did the reality competition show win its own time slot again, but Episode 24 drew the most viewers of any primetime show. This continued trend of success easily predicts that Big Brother 20 will end up being one of the most-watched shows of the summer 2018 television season.

August 19 Big Brother 20 ratings

A report from TV By the Numbers has updated the overall ratings for the night of Sunday, August 19. Big Brother 20 Episode 24 drew an estimated 5.8 million viewers, leading the way in the 8 p.m. time slot. The closest show was Celebrity Family Feud on ABC, which drew in an estimated 4.6 million viewers.

Big Brother winning key demographics again

CBS had a nice 1.6/7 mark for the key demographic on viewers aged 18-49 on Sunday night at 8 p.m. Again, only Celebrity Family Feud came close, with a 0.8/4 mark for the night. Having nearly double that number, the latest installment of Big Brother 20 provided a lot of eyes for CBS advertisers.

For some comparison, that’s an increase in overall viewers from last Sunday’s episode. The Big Brother ratings for August 12 had the show at an estimated 5.74 million viewers and a 1.6/8 mark in the key demographics. The upward trend of Sunday night viewers is a positive thing for any network.

The numbers for August 19 didn’t come that close to matching the Big Brother ratings from August 16. For the Rockstar eviction episode, CBS drew an estimated 6.49 million viewers for the 9 p.m. time slot. That is considered the high water mark for the show this summer.
