There’s no surer sign of summer than Big Brother dominating pretty much every night when people bother to watch TV. This Sunday was as sunny as ever for the 11th-season reality hit, as BB averaged 6.8 million viewers (yes, that’s a victory during the warm months) and, along with stalwart 60 Minutes (7.9 million), helped win the night for CBS. The rest of the weekend was more of the same: Reality triumphed with Fox’s Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? (5.7 million) on Friday, while burnoffs like NBC’s Kings (1.6 million) and the series finale of CBS’ Harper’s Island (3.9 million) were buried on Saturday.
