There 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.
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.
Final season averages for Sundays: 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.39 million total viewers.

For comparisons: Last summer’s Sunday night editions averaged a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.65 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?
