hells kitchen july 11 13 TV ratings: 'Hollywood Game Night' has OK start, 'Big Brother' and 'Hell's Kitchen' lead ThursdayFast National ratings for Thursday, July 11, 2013

The premiere of “Hollywood Game Night” gave NBC so-so ratings Thursday, drawing numbers in line with a lot of other series premieres this summer. It did grow a little in its second half-hour, which is a sign people watching liked what they saw. “The Winner Is” made its time-period debut for NBC and predictably fell off from its two-week preview following “The Voice” in June.

Also Thursday, “Big Brother’s” debut on the night tied FOX’s “Hell’s Kitchen” for the top adults 18-49 rating of the night. “Motive” dropped for ABC, while “Rookie Blue” was up slightly in viewers and off a bit in the 18-49 demographic.

CBS drew 6 million viewers and a 4.0 rating/7 share in households in primetime to lead the pack. ABC (4.6 million, 2.9/5) finished second overall, a little ahead of FOX (4 million, 2.5/4) and NBC (3.8 million, 2.5/4). The CW brought up the rear with 566,000 viewers and a 0.4/1.

FOX and CBS tied for the lead among adults 18-49, each scoring a 1.6 rating. NBC came in third with a 1.0, edging ABC’s 0.9. The CW scored a 0.2.
