ginamarie froyo big brother 15 TV ratings: 'Big Brother' grows again Sunday, 'Whodunnit?' dipsFast National ratings for Sunday, July 21, 2013

“Big Brother” hit a season high in total viewers for the second episode in a row Sunday, and it matched Thursday’s season best among adults 18-49 as well. It was far and away the night’s top show in the demographic and helped CBS score a ratings win for the evening.

Also Sunday, ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap” and “Whodunnit?” were down some from last week. The preview of “Animation Domination High-Def” on FOX put up mediocre numbers.

CBS averaged 5.2 million viewers and a 3.4 rating/6 share in households for the night. NBC (3.5 million, 2.2/4) edged ABC (3.46 million, 2.2/4) for second place, and FOX (2.6 million, 1.5/3) trailed.

FOX and CBS tied for the lead among adults 18-49 at a 1.1 rating. ABC posted a 0.9 and NBC a 0.8.
