CBS A HIT ON THURSDAY EVEN WITH RERUNS; NBC COLLAPSES

December 30, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

All of the broadcast networks aired reruns Thursday night, with CBS far in the lead in every half hour of primetime among both total adults and 18-49 year-olds, according to Nielsen Media Research. Its 8:00 p.m. comedy The Big Bang Theory actually drew 10.2 million viewers, nearly as many as those watching all of the other networks combined. (It pulled off the same feat at 10:00 p.m.) But while CBS shined, NBC produced some of the sorriest numbers ever. Repeat airings of The Office and Up All Night in the 10:00 hour drew only 1.9 million viewers, and it averaged just 2.15 million viewers for the night — a night that it once utterly dominated with its Must-See TV lineup.
