  • victor hugo

    Great for TBBT, TaHM and Person of Interest.. meh for Elementary

  • Raykov

    Go The Big Beast Theory!

  • PJM

    Way to go, BBT!

  • BigFlop

    easy to get that ratings with no competition and with…..

  • Petar Ivanov

    CBS super thursday is slowly growing more and more. With best new and fresh sitcom-BBT and drama-POI the trand will only continue. Think next season CBS will moce Elementary. Now POI is best CBS lead-in for new dramas and they will use that spot for new drama.

    ps Its interesting to see first 15 minutes and second 15 minutes on TAHM. We see that this show is old already and can’t grow like TBBT and POI. Np matter how big TBBT will be TAHM will stay at this levels.

    PS2 CBS super thursday victory is big ESPN football game hit 4.0 wich beat all NFL thursdays game on NFL network.

    This was an amazing episode. Glad it got the ratings it did.

  • Nick

    Hey Big Bang Theory Haters? I can’t hear you over 19.25 million viewers.

    Fan Excuse Bingo, ”Ratings are only great cause of no competition”.

    Sorry Community fans (The haters) that your show get’s like 13-16 million viewers less.

    @Taeg

    Another comedy facing TBBT is never going to do well.

    @Nick

    I predicted a series high for TBBT on yesterday’s ratings thread due to it facing repeats. Either I’m psychic or it does have an impact.

  • Petar Ivanov

    TAHM lose 4 million viewers. THat is a lot. Better compare BBT and POI with new sitcom like 2BG wich will grow, than old hit show like TAHM. No matter how huge TBBT is TAHM will stay at this levels. Now BBT and POI are growing but not TAHM. Its just too old for new fans.

    Football game on ESPN start at 8:15 so hit TBBT too.

  • Oliver

    Almost 75% retention by TaaHM is great, because nothing gets good retention after megahit shows.

    The bigger argument is whether CBS should have more comedy time rather than wasting such a giant lead-in on a veteran show.

  • BigFlop

    Nick
    oh yes TWD get’s like 13-16 million viewers less than TBBT, are you sure?

  • Nick

    Community does!

  • TomJH

    I bet the CBS execs are regretting not giving the post-Super Bowl slot to TBBT. It would’ve gotten over 40 million viewers and made them a ton of money. Elementary is gonna do worse than Alias.

    @The bigger argument is whether CBS should have more comedy time rather than wasting such a giant lead-in on a veteran show.

    TAHM without TBBT lead-in will collapse. I guess first half – 15 minutes are better than second half. This show is so expensive that ratings around 2.5 will be collapse and if get one more season without TBBT as lead-in demo will be that. SO if CBS want one more TAHM season will be AFTER TBBT.

  • rob60990

    Airing TBBT after the Super Bowl won’t benefit CBS long term. TBBT is already a monster hit.

    @TomJH
    Elementary is gonna do worse than Alias.

    Doubtful. Maybe if CBS decides to have an hour long postgame show… ;)

    Lack of any good pilots killed that decision for them. Partners was DOA and they haven’t even bothered to schedule Friend Me yet.

    @ TomJH
    TBBT is growing and without that slot. POI too. 2BG start growing too. Without the voice will be ok. SO all 3 fresh CBS shows are on uptrend now. They want 4 shows on that level. CBS old dramas are droping a lot this season and elementary is best option for cbs.

    I love that two completely different genre’s of television have the highest ratings. Network TV – TBBT. Cable – TWD. Mega Monsters. Beasts.
