American Idol Gets Beat By Nerds

Big Bang Theory Beats Idol

Very popular nerds, but nerds nonetheless!

American Idol has been beaten in the ratings by Big Bang Theory for the SECOND week in a row!

Could it be that America is finally tired of watching people sing in front of three judges for a shot at fame and fortune?!

Nah, the popular singing competition still took in a total of 17 million viewers during its hour on Thursday night, but only had 15.46 million viewers while the CBS sitcom aired in competition to receive 15.96 million total viewers.

BBT scored a a 5.4 rating to beat the 4.8 rating of Idol‘s first half hour and managed to win the 18-34 demographic.

Who said being a nerd wasn't cool?

    No, it's because a lot of us don't watch until it actually gets to some competition. I don't have time to waste watching them narrow it down starting with idiots that should not even be on there. They should do one show with only the idiots that are never going to make it and be done with it. I might have time for that just for a laugh. But it's too much.

    The Big Bang Theory is Fantastic and Idol has "jumped the shark".

    i dont like either one.

    Did Idol have 17 million viewers or 15.46 million?! You say both. Which is it? Do you even READ what you publish??

    I used to watch the bing bang theory sometimes and enjoy it..but now it's not really funny anymore. I even change the channel whenever it's on tv, It's annoying now (it was only good at the beginning). It's trying way too hard to appeal to a "wider" audience (mainstream). So it loses it's edge and material.

    Yes, we are very tired of these gay ass music themed british talentless contests. They need to go the fuck away, and take gay ass glee with em.

    Re: Athena0619 – Just to clarify. It seems everyone loves to use the phrase of the day "jump the shark" but most have no clue what the fuck it means. In order for Idol to have jumped the shark, they would have needed to change the show when it was on top. In a nutshell, jumping the shark, or screwing the pooch is the same as fixing something that is not broke. And that did not happen with Idol, it's still the same basic show, so no shark was jumped. Please read a book or something people.

    The Big Bang Theory is entertating and American Idol is not. What can JLo tell anyone about singing? And I like Steven Tyler and Aerosmith, but after the way Tyler butchered the anthem, he's not exactly in a position to judge either.

    BBT is the funniest, most clever, well written show on TV PERIOD. The casting is perfect and it is actually funny. ’nuff said.

    I agree with KarrieBelle (#8). My ears and eyes were bleeding to watch S. Tyler sang the NA. Actually it was not his fault. We already expected how it would be since we knew that S. Tyler was going to sing the NA. It wouldn't please our ears and eyes. The people who picked S. Tyler was the one in fault. He or she was stupid and crazy enough to pick S. Tyler. I hadn't watch AI since Ellen was picked as the judge. AI is getting so boring. It turns to be a fashion show with J. Lo as the main model.
