TV Ratings: 'Big Brother' leads, NBC new comedies 'Engels,' 'Sweden' drop

Big Brother topped all competition as usual on Thursday night, while NBC's two new comedies both struggled in their second outings.

CBS eke out a win on the night by virtue of having the strongest overall audience of 5.105 million viewers, but tied Fox in the 18-49 demographic with a 1.3 rating. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the only new episode of the night was Big Brother, which held even from last week with a 2.1 rating.

Fox came in second among the major four networks with the 1.3 rating and 3.779 million viewers. Hell's Kitchen managed to improve on the night to a 1.7 demo rating, while Gang Related followed up to a 0.9 rating.

In third was NBC, which averaged a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demo and 3.22 million viewers, TVByTheNumbers reports. Hollywood Game Night somehow improved to a 1.1 rating, but both new comedies fell from their already soft premiere numbers. Welcome to Sweden slipped to a 0.8 rating and Working the Engels dipped to a 0.6 rating.

ABC took up the rear with a 0.8 rating and 4.731 million viewers off steady performances from the network's three originals. Black Box, Rookie Blue and NY Med all were even with last week at a 0.6, 0.9 and 0.9 rating, respectively.

Technically CBS wasn't the top network in the advertiser-demo for the night as the honor went to Univision off the back of awards show Premios Juventud. The network averaged a 1.7 rating.
