TV Ratings: Is Big Bang Theory Really That Much Better Than 30 Rock

| Filed under: TV NewsAmerican IdolBusiness Blitz

big bang 30 rock

Note the fans of NBC comedies: STOP PIRATING!!!

ANYWAY….

Last night's Big Bang Theory wedding / season finale scored the show an over-all ratings victory for the night with 13.3 million viewers and a 4.2 18-49-year-old demo. Congrats nerds!

Second in over-all (but first in viewers) was….. American Idol! 15.1M and people tuned into watch another hopeful get the boot, but the show's 3.9 demo score was down a bit from last week.

The season ender for Person of Interest won third place for the night with 12.685M viewers and 2.6 in the demo.

Other big rating condensers included: The Mentalist averaged 12.42M viewers and a 2.4 rating; pre-finale Grey's Anatomy 9.56 m viewers and won the 9 p.m.'s key demo rating with a 3.4; ABC's Scandal averaged 6.48M (went down).

As for the non-contenders: Parks and Recreation and Community both aired season finales, but stayed stagnant with 3.46M and 3.12M respectively. The new 30 Rock was the lowest rated comedy of the night (What is wrong with the world??), bringing in 2.95M viewers.

Finally, The Vampire Diaries finale scored 2.49M (1.1 demo) but that's fantastic for the CW!

    30 rock is better than all those shit shows.

    If you think 13.3m "nerds" are watching Big Bang then I have a bridge to sell you. The nerds are the ones watching Community and 30 Rock. Some watch both shows, others think Big Bang is for dummys…

    30 Rock is a liberal, preachy program that has alienated much of its former fan base. It should have been cancelled.

    Yes. It is better.

    The Big Bang Theory is one of my favorite shows on TV! But I also watch Community and 30 Rock. Nothing wrong with liking both people. I just hate American Idol is still pulling in so many viewers. So tired of reality television.

    Really…Big Bang is better than 30 Rock, at least now. 30 Rock isn't nearly as good as it was but Big Bang is still awesome.

    BBT is a really great show. I only started watching last season and I'm getting caught up on all the old shows. 30 Rock is not what is used to be.

    30 Rock is way too political - as are the stars.
