In the latest TV ratings, ABC’s Labor Day Eve broadcast of the Florida State-LSU collegiate football match averaged 5.9 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating, dominating Sunday night in both measures.
Over on Fox, Premiere Boxing averaged 370,000 total viewers and a 0.1 demo rating, leading out of some MLS coverage.
The night’s only other fresh fare, CBS’ Big Brother, drew 3.1 mil and a 0.5, down sharply week-to-week to mark season lows.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Big Brother is not associated or affiliated with the Estate of George Orwell and is not based on the novel “1984.”
