Metered Market Thursday Rating Results
CBS Tops the Competing Networks Combined
ABC 2.6/ 4
NBC 2.1/ 3
Fox 2.1/ 3
CW 0.8/ 1
-Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening (Thursday 1/05/11):
CBS: +54, NBC: +17, Fox: -32, ABC: -59, CW: -65
The Big Bang Theory (CBS), Two and a Half Men (CBS), Person of Interest (CBS), Elementary (CBS)
-Losers (excluding repeats):
Only CBS and Fox were in originals last night, and the Eye net’s winning combination of The Big Bang Theory (12.4 rating/19 share), Two and a Half Men (9.5/15), Person of Interest (9.7/15) and Elementary (7.7/13) outdelivered the four competing networks combined. The Big Bang Theory is poised to top the week, no doubt, in both total viewers and adults 18-49 now that Sunday Night Football on NBC is over. Back-to-back episodes of Mobbed on Fox (which is a burn-off maneuver at this point) averaged a lackluster 2.1/ 3 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m.
Elsewhere, ABC populated the evening with an 8 p.m. encore of Wednesday freshman drama Nashville (#2: 2.5/ 4), which it is trying to attract new eyeballs for, and two repeats of sophomore Scandal (9 p.m.: #2, 2.6/ 4; 10 p.m.: #2, 2.9/ 5). NBC aired encores of 30 Rock (#3, 2.0/ 3), which concludes its seven-season run on January 31, Up All Night (#4: 1.8/ 3), The Office (#4: 1.8/ 3), Parks and Recreation (#4: 1.5/ 2) and Rock Center With Brian Williams (#3: 2.8/ 4). Rock Center moves to Fridays at 10 p.m. out of two-hours of Dateline effective on February 8. And The CW capped off this first Thursday in January with repeats of The Vampire Diaries (#5: 0.8/ 1) and Beauty and the Beast (#5: 0.8/ 1).
Like any typical season, the first week of the New Year is always riddled with repeats.
