Spotted Ratings, Thursday 7/12/12

  • Big Brother's back with a premiere that lost a couple ticks year-to-year but still topped the ratings for the four BB premieres before that. Seems pretty healthy. But it had considerable help from the highest-rated rerun for anything this summer to date in The Big Bang Theory. We're approaching a point where TBBT (especially at 8:30) is doing about twice as well in reruns as anything else on TV not named Family Guy.
  • Two other big movers on broadcast: The Choice, whose season/series finale got crushed against a likely similar-skewing Big Brother; and easily a summer high from Rock Center, which may have benefited from a piece on Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes/Scientology. Even throwing out this result, though, the show has picked up some steam in its first several weeks of summer originals.
  • On cable, Anger Management (1.0) took another big hit in week three, but MTV's Awkward. (0.8) had a nice bounce-back.
