CBS Wins Thursday in All Key Ratings Measures

Last night's premiere of BIG BROTHER outperformed last summer's inaugural broadcast in viewers, adults 18-49, adults 18-34 and adults 25-54 and was Thursday's #1 program in all key ratings measures, according to Nielsen preliminary live plus same day ratings for July 7.

BIG BROTHER THURSDAY (P) was first in households (4.6/08), viewers (7.71m), adults 25-54 (3.3/09), adults 18-49 (2.7/08) and adults 18-34 (2.3/08). Compared to the BIG BROTHER 12 THURSDAY premiere at 8:00 PM on the same night last year, CBS was up +5% in both households (from 4.4/08) and adults 18-34 (from 2.2/08), +14% in adults 25-54 (from 2.9/09), +8% in adults 18-49 (from 2.5/09) and added +340,000 viewers (from 7.37m, +5%).

This is the best delivery for a premiere episode of BIG BROTHER in households and adults 18-49 since BIG BROTHER 8 in 2007; in adults 18-34 since BIG BROTHER 7 in 2006; and in both viewers and adults 25-54 since BIG BROTHER 6 in 2005. BIG BROTHER 13 THURSDAY was the night's #1 program in households, viewers, adults 25-54, adults 18-49 and adults 18-34.

For the night, CBS was first in households (4.3/07), viewers (6.79m), adults 25-54 (2.4/07) and adults 18-49 (1.9/06).
