TV Ratings: 'Big Bang Theory,' repeats win on lackluster Thursday night

By Kyle Johnson,

The night after Christmas' television ratings are unsurprisingly weak given that most everything aired was a repeat, but CBS' The Big Bang Theory still managed to land on the top.

CBS managed to take the evening in both the ratings and in the 18-49 demographic, reports HitFix, with 6.47 million viewers and a 1.4 rating.

Theory sat at the top with a 2.6 in the demo and 10.97 million viewers. Two encore episodes of The Millers managed a decent 1.7 and 1.1 during the 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. time slots. Elementary also managed a 0.9 in the demo with a repeat.

ABC managed a 1.1 in the demo and 5.06 million viewers due to its 20/20 Mysteries of the Castle: Beyond 'Downton Abbey' special, which managed a 1.1 rating in the first hour and a 0.8 in the second. The night started off with a repeat of Shark Tank, which drew a 1.3 rating.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC managed to slip into third with 3.4 million viewers, but did tie with ABC in the demo at 1.1 thanks to the repeat of The Women of Saturday Night Live.

Fox aired repeats of Glee for a 0.4 rating in the demographic and 1.5 million viewers. The CW was right behind with 905,000 viewers and a 0.3 in the demo.
