Publish date:

Online interest in CBS' Big Brother continues to grow, according to online researcher Hitwise, while Fox continues to place the most shows in the top 10 list of broadcast-TV-show Web sites with the most traffic.

The CBS reality show was the most-visited site, with 29.84% of traffic, according to Hitwise's sampling of 10 million U.S. Internet users. That was up from 25.01% last week (ending Aug. 18).

America's Got Talent was in the No. 2 slot with 12.63% of the traffic, double its total of the week before, as the show's contestants gave their last performances for a chance for $1 million.

Fox claimed five of the top 10 shows, including Nos. 3 (So You Think You Can Dance, 8.83%), 4 (American Idol, 3.5%, which hasn't even been on since May), 5 (Hell's Kitchen, 3.28%) and six (America's Most Wanted, 3.06%).

Fox also had No. 8 with The Simpsons (2.11%), which actually led the list last month during the promotional blitz for the release of The Simpsons theatrical.

Rounding out the top 10 were CBS' Pirate Master (2.99%) at No. 7, NBC's Deal or No Deal (1.6%) at No. 9 and ABC's Grey's Anatomy (1.58%) at No. 10.
