Big Bang Theory Scores Highest Rating Yet

The Bakersfield ExpeditionBig Bang Theory has scored again. The CBS show delivered series-high ratings across the board Thursday night for its episode that featured the cast riffing on Star Trek: The Next Generation. 19.8 million viewers and a 6.3 adult demo rating at 8 p.m.

Big Bang Theory out-delivered Fox’s American Idol a few times in the demo last season. Could the hit comedy topple TV’s long-running top-rated series outright to rank No. 1 for the season? It’s possible given Idol‘s ratings trajectory in recent years and Big Bang‘s surging. Idol averaged an 8.9 in the demo last year; Big Bang is currently at a 6.4.

Though Big Bang performed amazingly well, the rest of CBS’ lineup took a slight dip, with Two and a Half Men, Person of Interest and Elementary down a tad from last week when they aired against repeats. On ABC, Last Resort returned (ABC promises the show will deliver a satisfying conclusion during its upcoming series finale), while Grey’s Anatomy perked up slightly compared to its last original a month ago.
