Episode 4.19 Ratings Posted April 1, 2011
Last night's episode of The Big Bang Theory finished a reasonably solid second behind Fox's reality behemoth American Idol, although CBS's Thursday night line-up was weaker than in previous weeks.
The Big Bang Theory was watched by 11.70 million people, down by around 400,000 from the last episode. The show scored a 3.6/11 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic, down by around 5% from the last new episode and a season low. The two week hiatus for the NCAA Championships has perhaps taken its toll on the ratings.
Rules of Engagement, which now follows Big Bang, was down a whopping 18% in the key demo on its last original outing.
