Big Brother Ratings Hit Season High, Rising Star Finale Up

The Rising Star finale ratings rose a bit, but I doubt it’s enough to earn another season from ABC. Meanwhile, Big Brother earned the highest ratings of the season.

  1. So all the people who swore they were done with BB when Zach got evicted were big talkers, just like the cast.

  2. Rising Star finale still gets beaten in the demo by animation domination reruns.

  3. RF couldn’t even get a 1.0 for its finale. I know it went up against football and the VMAs, but that’s not going to make ABC want to bring it back for a 2nd season.

    No news about the ratings for the VMAs?

  4. Shows like BB, Survivor, etc. do have contestants that are interesting that make you watch the season. But IMO if you’re a watcher of these types of shows a fan favorite or interesting contestant being eliminated doesn’t really change the ratings. Zach might have made the show intersting to watch, but I would think most people want to watch BB for the contestants interactions & the strategies & gameplay of the show.

  5. I wouldn’t hold my breath for a season two of Rising Star. It’ll be like their show Duets a one season event.

  6. Has anyone ever seen a number on how many people subscribe to the feeds? I’ve always been curious on what percentage of the viewers are also feed-watchers. Personally, I gave up on this show a few yrs back.

  7. I’m not sure how many people subscribe to the feeds. I’ve been an off & on BB watcher. But most of the seasons I’ve watched I never watched the feeds. The cast has to interest me enough to watch feeds.

  8. I’ve been on and off for years too, and I do like this seasons cast much more than recent years. This is the first season I got the live feeds, though I usually would read recaps on various sites. One reason is because I’m not as busy this year but I wouldn’t have gotten it if I didn’t like the cast. Last year I barely watched even the show because I couldn’t stand most of the cast.
