The Sunday debut of "Big Brother 14" fell some from Thursday's season premiere, but it still drew Sunday's best adults 18-49 ratings. It was not, however, big enough to give CBS an overall win in the demographic -- ABC's unscripted lineup and FOX's animation reruns shared that honor.

CBS led the night in total audience, averaging 5.4 million viewers and a 3.5 rating/6 share in households. ABC (4.8 million, 2.9/5) beat out NBC (4.6 million, 2.9/5) for second place. FOX brought up the rear in viewers with 3.1 million, and a 1.8/3.

ABC and FOX each drew a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 to lead the demo. CBS posted a 1.1 and NBC a 0.9.
