Last night's episode of The Big Bang Theory set a new series high in total viewers and matched its high in the adults 18-49 demographic. With only CBS airing originals last night, the network performed better than the other four networks combined.
"The Egg Salad Equivalency" was watched by 18.98 million people, up by 1.35m people on the previous record set by "The 43 Peculiarity". In the important adults 18-49 demo, The Big Bang Theory scored a 6.0/17 rating, matching the series-high set back in the third season by "The Large Hadron Collision".
The Big Bang Theory finished first in its time slot by all key ratings metrics and was the night's most-watched and highest-rated broadcast. The show will almost certainly rank as the week's most-watched and highest-rated show among adults 18-49.
