12 Highest-Rated Broadcast TV Shows of Summer 2020 (Photos)

No, it just FEELS like 12 nights of “Big Brother”

Summer is over and it goes without saying that coronavirus threw off pretty much everything about the season, including broadcast TV. But in a time of production delays and pushed premiere dates, June, July and August still saw new episodes of staples like “America’s Got Talent” and “Big Brother,” and the debuts of newbies like “Don’t” and “Broke” (R.I.P.) These are the highest-rated broadcast shows of 2020 ranked from lowest to highest, according to “most current” Nielsen data. For the purposes of this list, we omitted sports and only counted shows that aired five episodes or more between May 21 and Sept. 20. And yes, there are ties.Also Read: Here Are the Premiere Dates for Broadcast TV’s New and Returning Fall Shows (Updating)
