A Bump For CBS's 'Big Bang Theory'
CBS’s The Big Bang Theory surged while Fox’s American Idol slid last night. Bang jumped to a 6.1 adults 18-49 rating at 8 p.m., up 13% over last week and well ahead of Idol in their shared half hour. Idol averaged a 3.8 in its first half hour against Bang before growing a 4.4 in its second half hour. It averaged a season-low 4.1 for the night, off 9% from last week, when the two top-rated Thursday shows squared off for the first time.
