TV Ratings: 'Big Brother' Scores Another Win, 'Candy Crush' Sinks
Big Brother was again the biggest thing going on Sunday, despite a strong NASCAR push on NBC.
The reality show pulled another 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 6.1 million viewers. That haul, which led in the key demo, did not offer much of an assist to Candy Crush. In its third week, the game show dipped to a 0.5 rating in the key demo — a three-tenths of a point loss from the previous week.
NASCAR Brickyard 400 did NBC a good service, but its late run-time shifted primetime and renders scores for much of the network's lineup — Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly, Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge — tentative prior to Nielsen updates.
The ABC trio of Celebrity Family Feud (1.1 adults), Steve Harvey's Funderdome (0.8 adults) and $100,000 Pyramid (0.8 adults) was unmoved from the prior week.
