Wednesday TV Ratings: 'Big Brother' & 'AGT' Trounce 2020 RNC Night 3

Big Brother All Stars

Reality TV of the entertaining kind (as opposed to the political) won out during the Wednesday, August 26 primetime broadcast with CBS' Big Brother All-Stars leading the night in the 18-49 demo and NBC's America's Got Talent reigning supreme in total viewers.

For Night 3 of the 2020 Republican National Convention, the networks ended up close in both the 18-49 demo (they all tied with a 0.3 rating) and total viewers, though NBC slightly edged out CBS and then ABC. The fourth and final night airs tonight.
