On Sunday night, it was a successful first week for the ABC game shows. Celebrity Family Feud delivered a solid but perhaps lower than expected 1.6 demo. The $100,000 Pyramid was most impressive, building on its lead-in with a 1.7 demo. Match Game held on well with a 1.5 at 10pm. All in all, this is a solid summer lineup from top to bottom and ABC was smart to brand them the way they did. On CBS, Big Brother remained down on a year-to-year basis but it tied Celebrity Family Feud in the demo at 8pm and skewed much younger.

SUNDAY
Sunday night is game show night on ABC with a trio of game shows starting with season two of last summer's big hit Celebrity Family Feud hosted by Steve Harvey. Then it's series premieres of The $100,000 Pyramid hosted by Michael Strahan and Match Game hosted by Alec Baldwin. This old fashioned Sunday night lineup could a success for ABC or it could be too many game shows, we'll see.

On Wednesday night, a perennial summer show - Big Brother - returned for another season. The show, which has been on the air since 2000, was down two tenths in the demo from last summer's premiere but still solid for summer. The same couldn't be said for the series premiere of American Gothic at 10pm, which was ignored with a 0.7 demo. This looks as if it's on the same level as the Monday flop, BrainDead. On NBC, The Night Shift was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Finally on FOX, Masterchef was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo while Wayward Pines was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

On Tuesday night, CBS aired the series finale of Person of Interest. The one time top new show for the network and centerpiece of Thursday night ended its five year run very quietly with 6.5 million viewers and a 1.0 demo. As usual, it was NBC on top with America's Got Talent rising two tenths in viewers but dropping three tenths in the demo and Maya & Marty down nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. Over on ABC, Uncle Buck was down a big 1.5 million viewers and half a demo point from its surprising premiere while To Tell the Truth was down 1.1 million viewers and three tenths in the demo from last week's 10pm edition. Finally on FOX, Hotel Hell was up a tenth in viewers and down a tenth in the demo while Coupled was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

On Tuesday night, ABC's new summer lineup got off to a good start with Uncle Buck posting a very impressive 1.5 demo for a one hour premiere. This came out of nowhere and was stronger than Fresh Off the Boat for most of the season and all of The Real O'Neals except for its premiere night. I wonder if ABC is regretting not starting this show in the season. It was bookended by new game show To Tell the Truth, which did OK at 8pm and better at 10pm. On NBC, America's Got Talent was up a nice seven tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo while Maya & Marty was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. On CBS, Person of Interest was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, Hotel Hell was up a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo while Coupled was down a tenth in viewers and the demo.

On Monday night, Game 5 of the NBA Finals dominated the programming as the close game delivered a powerful 20.5 million viewers and 7.6 demo. On CBS, the new drama BrainDead was mostly ignored. It had a passable 4.6 million viewers but a terrible 0.7 demo. Oh well, it's just a summer show. On NBC, American Ninja Warrior had its time period premiere with a very solid 1.9 demo especially considering it was facing basketball. It helped the series premiere of Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge to a decent 1.5 demo. All in all, this looks to be a decent Monday lineup for NBC. Finally on FOX, So You Think You Can Dance was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Houdini & Doyle was down eight tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo to series lows.

On Sunday night, the Hamilton-fueled Tony Awards delivered their best viewership total since 2001 and best demo since 2003. The musical phenomenon brought a lot of people who don't usually watch the Tonys to Broadway's biggest night. Earlier in the night, 60 Minutes was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. On NBC, the Stanley Cup Finals that saw the Pittsburgh Penguins win the Cup delivered less viewers but skewed younger than the Tonys with a stronger demo.

On Wednesday night, NBC premiered American Ninja Warrior. While it's not quite America's Got Talent, it still was a solid performance that was just slightly below last year's premiere. It led into the season premiere of The Night Shift, which wasn't that much worse than its late in-season performances over a year ago. This is more appropriate as a summer series. On ABC, 500 Questions ended its short run with numbers on par with its regular results. Finally on FOX, Masterchef finally broke the sub 1.0 demo run FOX has been on by premiering with 3.8 million viewers and a 1.2 demo. It was on par with last year's premiere. At 9pm, Wayward Pines was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

On Tuesday night, TV's top summer show premiered for another season and the results were stellar. America's Got Talent on NBC was on par with last year's premiere and towered above everything with a 2.6 demo. It led into the series premiere of variety show Maya & Marty, which only did OK with 6.3 million viewers and a 1.5 demo, below last year's premiere of I Can Do That. It looks like this would be a bomb without its lead-in. On CBS, Person of Interest was up a nice 1.8 million viewers and a tenth in the demo with less competition. ABC saw minimal interest in another night of 500 Questions. Finally on FOX, Hotel Hell was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while Coupled was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.
