The Big Bang Theory was down too...
American Idol had a series low for a regular episode last night, getting a 3.0 rating in the demographic. Several other shows were down as well, which may be attributed to daylight savings time. The Big Bang Theory was the most watched show of the night but it too had its lowest rating of the season in the demographic. Community, Two and a Half Men, Glee and The Office were all down and Grey's Anatomy had a series low in the demo. NBC's Parks and Recreation actually managed to improve in the demographic from its last episode.
CBS won with 13.4 million viewers and an 8.3 rating/14 share in households. It was followed by FOX (8.5 million, 5.2/8), ABC (5.6 million, 3.8/6), NBC (3.15 million, 2.1/3) and the CW (2 million, 1.2/2).
In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS won again with a 3.1 rating, followed by FOX (2.5), ABC (1.7), NBC (1.2) and The CW (0.8).
