Everything was either down or steady on a quiet night.

Daily Comp 3way 2014 Wed Aug 13

CBS:  BIG BROTHER took honors for the night, but fell 0.2 from last week to 2.0.  EXTANT held at last week’s series low 1.0.

NBC:  AMERICA’S GOT TALENT dropped 0.2 to 1.8, and TAXI BROOKLYN held at 0.9, but those shows usually exchange 0.1 in final numbers because Taxi starts at 10:01PM.

FOX:  SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE slipped 0.1 to 1.0.

ABC:  MOTIVE was steady at 0.7, below all of the night’s sitcom reruns, which were led by a 1.3 for the 9:30PM MODERN FAMILY.

CW:  PENN & TELLER: FOOL US held last week’s premiere 0.5, followed by 0.2 for a THE 100 rerun.

The networks air their regular summer Thursdays tonight.
