CBS Big Brother ratings for the season 15 premiere matched the record for the weakest ever in the show’s history in the U.S. Big Brother 2013 returned to CBS on Wednesday with 16.3 million viewers and a 2.1 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18 to 49 demographic.

With those numbers, it looks like Big Brother ratings for the season 15 premiere were down 12 percent from last year’s in overall viewership and 19 percent in the 18 to 49 age group. This is pretty much about the same level as 2008’s Big Brother ratings for the season premiere that year, which were the lowest ever for the series.

Even so, Big Brother still managed to beat out all competition for total viewership in its 8 PM prime time hour, although it did tie with Fox’s MasterChef in the 18 to 49 group. We can only hope all the new twists and fan voting participation this year will help improve Big Brother ratings for the rest of the season.

Do you think Big Brother is losing it’s zing and might not return for another season?
