'The Locomotive Manipulation' Ratings

Last night's The Big Bang Theory episode finished a strong second place in the ratings for its time period, finishing behind NBC's coverage of The Olympics.

"The Locomotive Manipulation", which featured a big moment for Sheldon and Amy, had an audience of 17.53 million people. This was down by 1.52 million from last week's episode. NBC's Olympic coverage had 20.02 million viewers across its three hour broadcast.

In the key adults 18-49 demographic, The Big Bang Theory equaled its 5.2/15 rating even with tough competition from NBC, which itself scored a 6.0/17 rating.

The Big Bang Theory is in repeats for the next two weeks, owing partly to the extra competition from the Olympics, so the next episode will air Thursday, February 27.
