LOS ANGELES: After a three-week holiday break, CBS’ Thursday night line-up returned with The Big Bang Theory leading the charge – and the network’s hit sitcom started off the night by smashing ratings records.
The final ratings for Thursday night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory came in yesterday afternoon, and the numbers were big. The series hit a record viewership count with 19.25 million viewers and a 6.1 18-49 rating, Deadline reports.
The Big Bang Theory‘s previous viewer record came in at 17.63 million in November. The series also narrowly edged out its record in the 18-49 demographic – the previous record was 6.0.
