Big Brother ratings have recovered a bit during the summer 2020 season. After a rough start and then a few nights where the numbers dipped really low, the show has rebounded to some respectable territory over the last week.
Sunday nights had been the low point of the season, but the September 20 episode drew the highest numbers that Big Brother 22 has received this summer. It continues a trend of more people tuning in for the weekly CBS installments.
Regarding the low points of the season, those came on August 9 and September 14 (both Sundays), when an estimated 2.95 million and 3.65 million viewers tuned in for Episode 2 and Episode 14.
Now, the last six episodes have all drawn over four million estimated viewers, showing a really positive trend for the show and the network.
Big Brother ratings for September 20
For the Sunday night episode that saw Memphis Garrett win the Head of Household Competition, an estimated 4.26 million viewers tuned in to CBS. That’s the most viewers any single episode of Big Brother 2020 has received.
There was a lot of competition on television Sunday night, including NFL Week 2 action, the NBA playoffs, and the Emmy Awards. But people still tuned in to the latest episode of Big Brother in droves.
