CBS’ Race, Brother finales score high.
Tuesday’s three hours of reality TV finales did well for CBS. The Amazing Race 5 earned its highest ratings among people 18 to 49 ever, except for two episodes that trailed Survivor. A total of 12.9 million viewers watched the finale, which “was up about 50% from the Thursday finale for ‘Race 4’ last year,” Variety reports. Earlier in the evening, Big Brother 5 concluded with 10.4 million viewers, “its most watched episode of the season.”
