Thursday ratings: 'Big Brother,' repeats put CBS ahead

Posted on

Doldrums, thy name is “the first week of September.” Big Brother 11 was the only new network programming on last night, which perhaps contributed to its solid numbers. CBS’s reruns owned the rest of the night as well, beating its combined competition at 10 p.m.. Fox’s “tweet-peat” of Fringe didn’t quite set the world on fire as Fox might have hoped, and lost nearly 500,000 viewers in its second half.
