/// CBS ‘Bangs Up’ Thursday Nights, NBC’s Slide Continues

February 8, 2013  |  Media Week

CBS’ Thursday night comedy juggernaut The Big Bang Theory topped the 6.0 mark for the third time this season, running roughshod over its 8 p.m. competition. Per Nielsen fast national data, The Big Bang Theory drew 18.9 million viewers and a 6.1 in the 18-49 demo, up 13 percent from last week’s 5.4 rating. Season-to-date, only two other programs have reached the 6.0 threshold—NBC’s Sunday Night Football and Fox’s American Idol . TBBT also rang up sixes in January, averaging a 6.1 in the demo on the third and a 6.4 the following week. American Idol notched a 6.0 with its Jan. 16 season premiere, but the two-hour Wednesday night show has since dropped to a 4.6 in the dollar demo.
