teen choice lea michele cory monteith speech gi TV ratings: 'Big Brother' leads Sunday, Teen Choice Awards even with last yearFast National ratings for Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013

FOX’s broadcast of the Teen Choice Awards Sunday was on par with last year’s show — which is to say, not very big. It was the night’s top show among teenagers, but people over 18 didn’t pay much attention.

“Big Brother” scored the night’s top 18-49 rating, tying its number in the demographic last week and rising some in viewers, pending updates (CBS’ primetime lineup was delayed a few minutes for the end of the PGA Championship). “Unforgettable” also ticked up for CBS, as did “Whodunnit?” for ABC.

CBS averaged 6.9 million viewers and a 4.4 rating/8 share in households for the night to score an easy win over second-place ABC (3.8 million, 2.4/4). NBC (2.6 million, 1.8/3) beat out FOX (2.4 million, 1.4/2) for third.

CBS was the only network to get above a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49, finishing with a 1.4. ABC and FOX tied for second at 0.9, and NBC came in at 0.6.
