Fast National ratings for Sunday, July 28, 2013

The Season 2 premiere of "Unforgettable" was the top show of the night, though its numbers are down from Season 1. However, it has been off the air for over a year and is airing in the summer, as opposed to the regular season, making its 7 million viewers not too bad.

Also on the Eye, "Big Brother" hit a season high in total viewers with 6.81 million, while on ABC the finale of "Celebrity Wife Swap" was down just a touch from last week, but "Whodunnit?" was up just a touch.

CBS won the night with an average of 6.67 million viewers and a 4.3 rating/7 share in households. ABC was next with 3.3 million and a 2.0/4, followed by NBC at 2.95 million and a 1.9/3 and FOX at 2.6 million and a 1.5/3.

In the adults 18-49 demo, CBS also won with a 1.3, while FOX was second at 1.2, then ABC at 0.9 and NBC at 0.7.
