“The Big Bang Theory” hit a series low among adults 18-49 with its April 13 episode. In the dog days of the late TV season, however, it was still good enough to be the week’s No. 1 show on broadcast TV.

The CBS comedy finished first in both adults 18-49 (2.5 rating) and viewers (11.89 million) for the week of April 10. “Empire” was a close second in the 18-49 demographic at 2.3, and “Dancing With the Stars” finished No. 2 in viewers at 10.31 million.

Here are the network standings for the week of April 10-16 and the season to date.
