At this point in the summer, viewers know what they want to watch:  nothing on last night’s schedule budged more than 0.1 from the week before.

Daily Comparison 2013 Wed Aug 7 three way

NBC:  AMERICA’S GOT TALENT took the night for NBC with 2.5, up 0.1.  CAMP was similarly up 0.1 to 1.2, which was enough to win 10PM, but just narrowly over CBS’s CSI rerun (which won in total viewers).

CBS:  BIG BROTHER was even at 2.1, and followed by a pair of 1.1 reruns.

FOX:  MASTERCHEF slipped 0.1 to 2.2.

ABC:  THE LOOKOUT held at 0.9, tying reruns of MODERN FAMILY and THE MIDDLE.

CW:  Reruns at 0.4/0.3.

Everyone airs their regular summer Thursday line-ups tonight, so ABC has 3 fresh hours, NBC has 2 and CBS 1, while FOX is all-rerun.
