The rollout of "Big Brother 15" continued Sunday for CBS, and as with Thursday's premiere, it was down some from last season's Sunday premiere. It was also, however, the highest-rated show of the night in adults 18-49, and helped CBS win the night.

The networks once again didn't have much to write home about on Sunday. ABC's "Whodunnit?" fell from its premiere, and NBC's "Crossing Lines" was flat in adults 18-49 with last week and down some in viewers.

CBS delivered 5.55 million viewers and a 3.6 rating/6 share in households for the night. NBC (3.6 million, 2.4/4) edged ABC (3.5 million, 2.2/4) for second place. FOX trailed with 2.3 million viewers and a 1.4/2.

CBS also led the adults 18-49 demographic, although it scored only a 1.1 rating. FOX took second with a 1.0, followed by ABC, 0.9, and NBC, 0.8.
