Ratings Watch: ‘Big Brother,’ ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,’ Macy’s Fireworks Dominate Slow July 4 Week

The Independence Day holiday fell on a Tuesday this year, putting a bit of a crimp in the mid-week ratings for broadcast and cable networks – but ultimately not impacting summer darling “Big Brother.”

The reality vet’s Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday episodes were the top-rated programs among adults 18-49 for the week ending July 9, 2017, while the Sunday episode was the most-watched show overall with total viewers.

Among premieres, FX touted the July 5 launch of “Snowfall,” which averaged a 1.0 rating with adults 18-49 and 2.24 million total viewers, when three days of DVR and VOD usage is included. Per FX, of the 30 cable drama series premieres year-to-date, the premiere telecast of “Snowfall” ranked in the Top 5 with adults 18-49, adults 18-34 and adults 25-54.

Shows just bubbling under on this chart include TNT’s recently renewed “Claws,” which averaged 2.1 million viewers in its July 9 airing (bumping up 77% when timeshifted viewing is included) and a 0.8 rating in the demo; while the canceled “The Carmichael Show” averaged 3.8 million viewers and a 0.9 rating for its 9 p.m. episode on July 5. The most time-shifted show of the week in the top 100 was AMC’s “Preacher,” which grew its audience by 92% between live/same day (1.1 million) and live+3 (2.1 million).
