“The Big Bang Theory” was once again low with an original episode Thursday, but a rerun of the show may have helped the rest of CBS’ lineup.
The original “Big Bang” at 8 p.m. drew a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49, tying last week’s early number (it adjusted up to 2.6 in the finals). A rerun at 8:30 earned a 1.6, up from the 1.2 for “The Great Indoors” last week. In turn, “Mom” (1.5, +0.2 for a six-episode high), “Life in Pieces” (1.2, +0.1) and “The Amazing Race” (0.9, +0.2) all improved.
“Riverdale” (0.4) rose a tenth of a point vs. last week for The CW with the revelation of Jason Blossom’s killer. “Supernatural” was even at 0.5.
“Scandal” (1.3) dipped a tenth vs. last week on ABC. “Grey’s Anatomy” was even with last week’s preliminary 1.7 (it adjusted up in the finals), while “The Catch” 0.6 is even with its final number a week ago (but down from a preliminary 0.7).
The season finale of “Superstore” went out quietly, tying its season low at 0.8. “Chicago Med” ticked up a tenth to 1.1, and “The Blacklist” held at 0.8.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
