There's no quitting with Big Brother.
The CBS summer staple drew its largest audience since September 2007, with 8.5 million total viewers tuning in to see both Daniele and Jeff leave the Big Brother house for jury. The latest episode also tied its season high in the ad-coveted adults 18-49 demographic, averaging a 3.2 rating. With the strength of Big Brother's ratings performance, CBS easily topped the night in both viewers (7.2 million) and the demo (2.2).

Rookie Blue (5.1 million, 1.3) also improved 8 percent, while Wipeout (6.7 million, 1.9) remained steady.
