Thursday Final Ratings: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Tops ‘American Idol’ 1st Half Hour; ‘Office,’ ‘Mentalist,’ ‘Grey’s’ Adj. Up; ‘Person,’ ‘Rob,’ ‘Parks’ Adj. Down
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.
