Because of its built-in compatibility with hot off-network comedy The Big Bang Theory, TBS‘ new competition series King Of The Nerds sounded as the most promising new Turner reality prospect as TNT and TBS are boosting their unscripted portfolios with a slew of new shows. Last night, King Of The Nerds got off to a solid start with Big Bang as its lead in. The premiere of the unscripted series at 10 Pm drew 2 million total viewers, more than 1.2 million adults 18-49 and 586,000 adults 18-34 in Live+Same Day. That was pretty close to TBS’ scripted series premieres behind Big Bang, including the recent TBS debut of Cougar Town (1.3 million adults 18-49 and 613,000 adults 18-34) at the fraction of the cost.
