“Big Brother” coasted to the top spot in Sunday’s 18-49 ratings, leading its closest competition by a good margin and helping CBS to a win for the night.

Elsewhere Sunday, ABC’s “Rising Star” was off slightly from last week, and wasn’t helped by a lower “Wipeout” lead-in. CBS’ other originals, “Unforgettable” and “Reckless,” were even in adults 18-49, with “Reckless” up slightly in viewers.

CBS scored 6.2 million viewers and a 3.9 rating/7 share in households in primetime, well ahead of second-place finisher ABC (3.3 million, 2.0/4). NBC (3 million, 1.9/3) took third, and FOX (2.2 million, 1.3/2).

CBS’ 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 was good enough to win the demographic title for the night. FOX took second at 1.0, and ABC and NBC tied for third at 0.7
