Last season’s Thursday editions of Big Brother drew bigger ratings than the previous year’s. Will the numbers continue to climb or will they drop? Will CBS renew it for a 17th season? Could it possibly be cancelled? Time will tell.
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.

For comparisons: Last summer’s Thursday night editions averaged a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.4 million viewers.
Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
What do you think? Do you still like the Big Brother TV series? Do you watch consistently? Should it be cancelled or renewed for another year?
