TV ratings: 'Big Brother' helps CBS rise to top

'Big Bang Theory' had Thursday's highest ratings

CBS came out on top of the TV ratings Thursday with “Big Brother” and “Big Bang Theory.”

"Big Brother," though down 5% from last week, still got a rating of 2.1 in the key 18-to-49-year-old demographic, according to Nielsen ratings.  More than 6 million people tuned in to the show.

“Big Bang Theory” had a rating of 1.8 in the key demo, but with over 7 million views, it was the No. 1 program of the night overall.

More than 5 million people also tuned in to CBS’ “The Millers,” making it the No. 3 most-viewed program of the night.

On Fox, the season finale of “Hell’s Kitchen” got a rating of 1.7 in the key demo, earning it the No. 3 spot in that same category. 

The show was down 19% from the 8 to 9 p.m. hour of last summer's two-hour finale in the key demo, with a rating of 2.1.  However, it only dipped 6% in total viewers, with roughly 5 million people tuning in this year versus the 5.3 million last year. 

“Gang Related,” which had a rating of 0.8 in the key demo, was down 11% from last week but stayed steady with 2.6 million overall viewers.

The two-hour finale of ABC’s “Black Box” saw a 17% rise in viewership among the key demo with a rating of 0.7.

NBC’s “Hollywood Game Night” stayed even with last week’s ratings. The show scored a rating of 1.1 with the key demo and 4.04 million viewers total.
