Thursday Ratings: CBS Wins the Night

Welp. With the mega-hit show, The Big Bang theory back from hiatus, American Idol took a big hit in the ratings, as predicted.  Big Bang knocked Idol back under a 5.0 rating in the key 18-49 demo.  And with Person of Interest returning to the schedule, Glee took a hit too. It was an all around win for CBS last night. Via TVByTheNumbers

On FOX, American Idol  earned a 4.5, down seven tenths from last week’s 5.2 adults 18-49 rating. Glee scored a 2.1, down from last week’s 2.6
