Big Brother: Season 16 Ratings (Sun)

Big Brother CBS TV show season 16There aren’t many shows that could sustain a three nights a week schedule but Big Brother on CBS has done it for years. Will viewers continue to want to watch all that Big Brother? Will the series be cancelled or renewed for season 17? Stay tuned.

Big Brother typically airs three nights a week — Wednesdays (veto), Thursdays (eviction), and Sundays. Julie Chen is the host once again.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    Its worrying that program like big brother is even allowed on the television, Channel 5 must have a very low opinion of themselves, it concern me that the people that run the company believe this is entertaining, believe me these people on the program are sick, with mental problems, some should be sectioned under the mental heath act. do you really want british people watching this utter crap
