big-bang-theory-l7-ratings-nov-19-15

“The Big Bang Theory” was the biggest gainer in both adults 18-49 and viewers in the Live +7 ratings for Nov. 16-22.

The CBS hit added 2.4 points to its 18-49 total (3.8 to 6.2) to beat out FOX’s “Empire” (4.4 to 6.5, +2.1) for the largest bump in delayed viewing. It also gained 5.94 million viewers, topping the usual leader in that measure, NBC’s “Blindspot” (+5.24 million).

With “Quantico” taking the week off for the American Music Awards, “The Originals” was the percentage-gain leader. It doubled in adults 18-49 (0.4 to 0.8) — as did “The Vampire Diaries” and “America’s Next Top Model” — and nearly did so in viewers (802,000 to 1.57 million, a 96 percent rise).

The Top 25 shows (including ties) in the Live +7 ratings for Nov. 16-22, 2015 are below. The rankings include first-run regular series only, not repeats or specials.
