Ratings: Big Bang Theory Rises, Draws Biggest-Since-Premiere Audience

CBS’ The Big Bang Theory on Thursday drew 15.8 million total viewers and a 3.3 rating, rising 9 percent to its best-since-season premiere audience while gaining two tenths in the demo.

NBC’s Thursday Night Football broadcast (10 mil/2.7) dropped 18 and 27 percent from last week’s fast nationals.

Elsewhere on the night, ABC’s Great American Baking Show (3.6 mil/0.8) dipped week-to-week, while The CW’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball special (1.2 mil/0.4) matched last year’s numbers.

    What are the chances TBBT gets renewed for a Season 11? Wouldn’t rule out if this season should end at some point despite salaries from the cast.

    Big Bang is a cash cow for CBS. It will be interesting to see if they can get the actors to sign up for a Season 11. I bet at least one drops out.

  3. KLS says:

    These articles are so misleading. It never states that CBS was the only network that had new, scripted episodes on for the night. Which means no Shondaland (Grey’s Anatomy) for competition. I guess they are just stating the stats, not the reasons why.

    Well of course eveyone tuned into Big Bang. They wanted to see Shamy have “coitus” again. Lol! And the baby too.
