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?
