Last night, Big Brother 13
had its Wednesday-episode premiere, and boy did it ever. Big Brother
enjoyed its best ratings for a Wednesday premiere since 2003. This supplied some stiff competition for NBC's America's Got Talent
and FOX's So You Think You Can Dance
. Love in the Wild
too saw a considerable drop.
Let's take a look at the numbers.
Last night's Wednesday premiere set Big Brother
records. It was up 13% versus last year's Wednesday premiere, with 7.25 million viewers to its name. Big Brother
