The final ratings for last night's hour-long season premiere of The Big Bang Theory are in. Both of the night's episodes were adjusted upwards in the final ratings, with the night's second episode hitting a new series high in viewers.
"The Hofstadter Insufficiency" at 8:00 was watched by 18.99 million people and scored a 5.5/18 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic. Compared to last year's season premiere in the same half-hour, The Big Bang Theory was up half a rating point in the demo and added 3.33 million viewers.
"The Deception Verification" at 8:30 had a record audience of 20.44 million people and scored a 6.1/18 rating in the demo. With 20.44m viewers this is now the most-watched episode of The Big Bang Theory ever, eclipsing "The Bakersfield Expedition" which had an audience of 20m people back in January.
The Big Bang Theory easily won its time slot and the night as a whole to finish as the night's most-watched and highest-rated program. Throughout the hour, The Big Bang Theory had more viewers and a higher rating in the 18-49 demo than the other four networks combined. The Big Bang Theory is also the top performing show in the adults 18-49 demographic of the entire week.
