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