TV Ratings: 'Astronaut Wives Club' Inches Up, 'Big Brother' Leads Thursday
Steady outings of Big Brother and Under the Dome topped Thursday night on the broadcast networks. The CBS duo, averaging a respective 2.0 and 1.0 rating among adults 18-49, won the 9 and 10 p.m. hours.
The rest of the pack was similarly steady with the previous week, though Astronaut Wives Club did grow (by two-tenths of a point) on ABC. Its 0.8 rating in the key demo led lead-outs Mistresses and Rookie Blue, each of which was even with last week's 0.7 with adults 18-49.
Food Fighters was steady on NBC with a 0.7 demo rating, and Dateline Mystery (1.0 adults) held even.
Fox had a steady Boom (0.6 adults) and The CW had even outings of Beauty and the Beast (0.2 adults) and Dates (0.1/0.2 adults).
