    the people from CBS are the same who “decides” the ratings or they live in the same block ?

  • Flame

    New math:

    Demo TBBT 6.1 > 3.0 Rest combined
    Viewers in million TBBT 19.25 > 9.5 Rest combined

  • Match

    WOW The Big Bang Theory has the same ratings as last season’s premiere numbers of American Idol.

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

    Other than football. Of course.

    “New math:

    Viewers in million TBBT 19.25 > 9.5 Rest combined”

    That would be the math that ignores that the majority of people were watching cable shows.

    Yes, Go Elementary….. Awesome show and CBS’ #1 new show !! :)

    SUperBowl Spot will see its ratings sky rocket :)

  • Ashley

    Go TBBT!!! I wonder what the numbers will be at this finale and the season premiere next season. I wonder if it’ll hit almost 7.0. If any show can, it would be this one. POI is definitely getting better. We watched last night’s episode and it was awesome. I hope the numbers continue to grow. Best drama and comedy out there!

    What I never understood was the popularity of Modern Family. I watched one episode and was done. I didn’t find it interesting or funny but to each their own.

    “What I never understood was the popularity of Modern Family. I watched one episode and was done. I didn’t find it interesting or funny but to each their own.”

    …and I think TBBT is one of the worst comedies on tv..

    so exactly, each to their own

  • BigFlop

    tbbt and elementary should keep the same audience and ratings, next week, if not these numbers don’t have enough significance.

  • Dat

    As long as POI didn’t get adjusted down, it’s all good.

    POI now matched its series’ high with 3.4. I wonder how it will do next week when Grey’s and AI come back.

  • Reader

    I’m so happy for POI! Such a good episode last night, too, despite the minimal Reese. Michael Emerson killed it.

  • BoB

    Bring back mentalist instead of elementary :(

  • Melissa

    SO all 3 fresh CBS shows are on uptrend now. They want 4 shows on that level.

    Oh, you work for CBS? No? If not, then please explain why you think you know the exact number of shows CBS wants on that level. So many people on this website talk about “what the network wants”, when realistically, we have no way of knowing for sure.

    @Bill Gorman, I totally wanted to add Football since my Skins were part of the highest rated NFL game EVER. I don’t watch TBBT but I do watch Football and TWD. Two out of three ain’t bad ;)

  • lakersupbyten

    Good shows go up..Elementary my dear Watson!

  • Ben

    I really don’t get what people see in TBBT. I used to like it but after season 3 is has gotten worse every season.

  • sarah nz

    Very happy PoI didn’t adjust down in the finals like it has done in the past :)

  • askmelast79

    Great that POI did NOT adjust down! Yes! :)

  • Amy

    @ Ashley, I agree with you about MF. I watched a few episodes online from S1 and it was filled with stereotypes.
