unforgettable ratings july 20 2014 TV ratings: 'Unforgettable' rises, helps CBS win SundayFast National ratings for Sunday, July 20, 2014

“Rising Star” saw an uptick in viewers a week ago, but this week the show backslid, down by three-quarters of a million viewers. “Big Brother” was also down over last week, albeit by less than a quarter million viewers.

The time-period switch of “Unforgettable” and “Reckless” continues to help CBS slightly. “Unforgettable” was again up in total viewers and “Reckless” again held steady.

CBS’ lineup of new programs, led by top show of the night “60 Minutes,” took first in total viewers with 6.1 million and a 3.9 rating/7 share in households. ABC was second with 4.1 million and a 2.4/4, followed by NBC (2.9 million, 1.8/3) and FOX (2.2 million, 1.3/2).

In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS also won, though with a paltry 1.1 rating. FOX was second with 1.0, ABC at third with 0.9 and NBC in fourth with 0.8.
