CBS’ Big Brother (1.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic, 3.79 million viewers) was Thursday’s highest rated and most watched show on the Big 4, helping the network win overall in both metrics on a night when ABC’s lineup touched season lows.

The latest Love Island (0.5, 2.34M) dipped a tenth for CBS, which also had a new Elementary (0.5, 2.82M), up a tenth. Fox’s MasterChef (0.7, 2.94M) topped Love Island as 8 PM’s top-rated show; viewership honors in the hour went a repeat of The Wall on NBC.
