In what feels like the Bush/Gore Florida election of TV ratings days, American Idol and The Big Bang Theory were each adjusted up a tenth of an adults 18-49 ratings point versus Thursday's preliminary ratings. And we know that the American Idol 8pm half hour rating was a 5.2 (the second half hour was a 6.3), and so unless there are some hanging chads out there, The Big Bang Theory topped the 18-49 ratings in the 8pm half hour. Whew.

In other adjustments,  The Office, The Mentalist and Grey's Anatomy were each adjusted up a tenth. and Person Of Interest, Rob and Parks & Recreation were each adjusted down a tenth.
