'Big Brother'

Sunday Night saw a strong showing from both ABC and CBS, the latter propelled by overrun of the PGA Championship.

ABC's trio of game shows bested the competition, with all but $100,000 Pyramid steady with last week. Celebrity Family Feud led with a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49. Pyramid and Match Game followed with a respective 1.2 and 1.1 rating among adults 18-49.

With the PGA shifting Big Brother to 8:30, early scores for the CBS reality show have it down to a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 — though that's still the top showing of any broadcast series for the night. BrainDead took a 0.5 rating in the key demo.

The Teen Choice Awards remain a draw for, well, teens. Though the telecast skewed well with the younger set, it only pulled a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 1.8 million viewers.
