Big Brother hit another season high on Sunday night. Fast National returns have the CBS series up three-tenths of a point from last Sunday, giving the network a nightly advantage in the demo with an average 1.1 rating and topping in viewers with 5.2 million.

Fox tied CBS with adults 18-49, driven by solid repeats of its cartoon block and a good 9:30 p.m. sampling of upcoming Saturday lineup Adult Domination High-Def. The half-hour sampling of Axe Cop and High School USA! netted a 1.1 rating for the half-hour. Fox averaged 2.6 million viewers.
