Last night saw the premiere of Big Brother 13
, the summer reality phenomenon. CBS came roaring back, with Big Brother 13
turning out some of its best ratings ever, and easily winning the night. That's a nice change of pace for CBS, which has been airing reruns pretty consistently all summer. Meanwhile, on FOX, So You Think You Can Dance
maintained its Thursday ratings versus last week. ABC's lineup of Wipeout
, Expedition Impossible
and Rookie Blue
was a mixed bag, and NBC's Love Bites
just kept on keeping on.
Let's take a look at the numbers.Big Brother 13
certainly stole the night. It was up 5% from last year's premiere, with 7.71 million viewers. Those are the best ratings for a Big Brother
show since 2007. Not bad for a more-than-a-decade-old reality show, huh?If you missed the Big Brother 13 episode, check out our recap!
