TV Ratings: 'Extant' Sees No Lift in Move

CBS' Halle Berry drama, which shifted to 10 p.m. this Wednesday, holds steady with its most recent showing.

For better or worse, Extant was steady this week. CBS' new summer drama held its 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 during its first airing at 10 p.m. The premiere has now added another 50 percent of its demo rating thanks to live-plus-7 ratings, but same-day showings remain thin.

Extant held that score without an original lead-in from Big Brother — itself steady this week with a 2.2 rating in the key demo.

Big Brother tied NBC's America's Got Talent (2.2 adults), off two-tenths of a point with its condensed one-hour broadcast. Taxi Brooklyn (1.1 adults) held last week's score.

Among the night's other competition, both So You Think You Can Dance (1.1 adults) and Motive (0.7 adults) were steady. 

And the premiere of The CW's Penn & Teller: Fool Us averaged a 0.5 rating with adults 18-49. That's a big improvement from the short-lived comedies that premiered on the network earlier this summer. It also marks the network's most-watched (1.8 million viewers) summer series premiere to date.
