Sunday TV Ratings 8/23/20: Biden/Harris Interview Does Solidly, Big Brother Leads (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC swapped out its usual 'Celebrity Family Feud' repeat for an exclusive interview with presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris (0.7). It performed a good bit higher than what the DNC was pulling on ABC last week but also lost two-tenths from an NBA-inflated 'AFV' repeat (0.9). The interview's numbers were not earth-shattering but still very respectable. Later in the night came repeats of 'Press Your Luck' (0.4) and 'Match Game' (0.4), both dropping significantly from Biden.

Even with a stronger alphabet network, a steady 'Big Brother' (1.0) topped the networks once more on CBS. It led out of a decently-rated '60 Minutes' repeat (0.5) and led into dismal encores of 'NCIS: LA' (0.3) and 'NCIS: NO' (0.3). 

'Cannonball' (0.4) remained unchanged from last week on NBC but the 'NHL Playoffs' game (0.5) gained a tenth after it. Fox had 0.2s across the board for 7pm-9:30pm comedy repeats with 'Family Guy' (0.3) unsurprisingly rising above the rest at the end of the block. The CW's 'Fridge Wars' (0.1) held even while a repeat of 'Supernatural' (0.1) gained a tenth after last week's disastrous 0.0 rating.

Finals Update: Repeats of Last Man Standing (-0.1), Duncanville (-0.1), NCIS: Los Angeles (-0.1), and Family Guy (-0.1) adjusted down.
