The CBS summer reality show did not suffer a large decline, as it averaged 6.5 million total viewers and a 2.3 rating in adults 18-49. In the 8 p.m. hour, the network aired reruns of “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two and a Half Men,” with 7.8 million and a 2.1 and 6.7 million and a 1.9, respectively.

ABC’s “Wipeout” rose three-tenths to 5.8 million, 1.6 in the 18-49 demo, and cop drama Rookie Blue jumped to 5.8 million, 1.5 in the demo.

Hospital drama “Saving Hope” on NBC improved in its 9 p.m. time slot to 4.1 million, 1.1 in the demo. CW’s singing show “The Next” jumped to 1.3 million with a 0.5 rating in the demo.

CBS and ABC both had 1.0 ratings for their coverage of the final night of the RNC.  That was an improvement for both networks, while NBC’s dropped to 0.8. The Fox Network had an evening of repeats on.

CBS won the night with an average rating of 1.8 in the demo, followed by ABC (1.4), Fox (1.1), NBC (1.0) and the CW (0.5).
