CBS wins again...
The Big Bang Theory managed to match series highs in total viewers and reach a season high in the demographic last night, enough for CBS to win the night. Meanwhile, The Voice aired on Thursday, which meant another loss for The X Factor head-to-head. Glee returned after a five week hiatus due to baseball and election coverage, with a season low. Two and a Half Men (with Miley Cyrus), Person of Interest, The Office and Parks & Recreation all had season highs in viewers.
CBS won with 13.6 million viewers and an 8.6 rating/14 share in households. It was followed by ABC (7.1 million, 4.6/7), NBC (6 million, 3.8/6), FOX (6 million, 3.6/5). and The CW (2.4 million, 1.5/2).
In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS won with a 3.2 rating, followed by FOX (2.4), ABC (2.2), NBC (2.1) and The CW (1.1).
