Ratings: Big Bang Theory beats American Idol again on Thursday

Update: American Idol adjusted up to 4.9

The Big Bang Theory was the #1 show on Thursday with a 5.1 adult rating beating American Idol again.

American Idol had a 4.8 adult rating (down 11% from last week) and 17 million viewers.

Even with adjustments later today, Idol will still be in the 4’s (it normally jumps up a tenth) — and you know what that means… I panic. Can Idol recover next week? I’m now back to being cautious. Considering how boring the results were last night, 4.8 still isn’t so bad? How do I spin this?

The rest of the numbers:

From FOX_Research:

At 8p, #AmericanIdol was No. 1 in its hour among Adults 18-49 (4.8/14), Total Viewers (17.0 million) & Teens (3.1/12)

From TVbytheNumbers:

At 8pm a one hour version of American Idol was down 11% from last week’s two-hour episode to a 4.8 adults 18-49 rating. The Big Bang Theory returned after a week off with a 5.1 adults 18-49 rating, down two tenths from two weeks ago but if history is a guide it’s likely that both The Big Bang Theory and American Idol see adjustments up in the finals.

Person Of Interest rose to new season highs in adults 18-49 and total viewers and was up three tenths from its last original to a 3.4 adults 18-49 rating, BUT… CBS had preemptions for college basketball and the ratings are more subject to revision in the finals than normal.
