Reel TV Ratings: (Thursday) The Big Bang Theory Easily Topped Thursday Night But Falls To A Series Low

The Big Bang Theory is still the Thursday rating champ but the long-running comedy series hit a series low for the network.

The show drew a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 13.61 million viewers, down two-tenths of a point from its last episode. It being a series low still didn’t stop it from being the top scripted program for the evening. Basically, CBS isn’t crying over a 2.4 rating in the demo but it shows even the biggest shows also see declines. CBS’ other shows were all down from their NFL-assisted Thanksgiving numbers a week ago, but Young Sheldon (2.1, 12.05 million viewers) and SWAT (1.0, 6.63 million viewers) were each up a tenth vs. two weeks ago, while Mom (1.4, 8.69 million viewers) and Life in Pieces (1.1, 6.59 million viewers) held steady.

On FOX, Gotham (0.8, 2.63 million viewers) was off a tenth from its last episode but still relatively steady against the competition. The Orville held steady at a 0.9 demo rating and 3.63 million viewers.

On The CW, Supernatural hit a season low with a 0.5 demo rating and 1.73 million viewers. Still a solid result for the long-running series.
