Spotted Ratings, Thursday 1/3/13: The Six Bang Theory


WHAT MATTERS:
  • Thursday marked the second straight night for what I call the One-Network Showcase, with a single network airing originals against basically no competition. The difference between last night and Wednesday was that this lineup was high-rated to begin with. So what we got from CBS Thursday was some genuine enormity. The Big Bang Theory adjusted up in finals to a new series high, eclipsing the previous 6.0 from about three years ago when it was a Monday 9:30 show. And it may very well adjust up to a new one. And Two and a Half Men and Person of Interest were at least as far ahead of previous results this season. Elementary may not have gotten the kind of bump CBS hoped for, but it was still the show's highest rating since the premiere.
  • Fox had two more hours of Mobbed at about the same level as the previous night, and the networks in repeats never cracked a 1.0 with lineups that don't encore well.
