ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap for some reason saw an uptick this Sunday, rising 24 and 33 percent week-to-week to deliver 3.6 million total viewers and a 1.2 demo rating.
Leading out of that,
Whowatchesit? Whodunnit? inched up to 3.1 mil/1.1.
Elsewhere on Sunday, NBC’s Crossing Lines matched last week’s total audience (2.9 mil) but ticked down to a new demo low of 0.5…. Per very prelim numbers tainted by 20 minutes of golf delay, Big Brother might be looking at a drop from last Sunday, yet likely will nonetheless dominate top broadcast TV’s night in the demo.
Lastly, rewinding a bit: The CW’s Cult finale on Friday night drew 410,000 total viewers and a 0.1 rating, while ABC’s 666 Park Avenue closer on Saturday did 1.6 mil/~0.3.
Ratings for The Newsroom, which airs on a “cable” channel (called “HBO”), will of course come in much later and be reported under separate cover.
