The Big Bang Theory revolves around a group of geeky scientists, their friends and significant others. The castmembers are Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch, and Mayim Bialik.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

CBS enjoyed one final Monday of The Big Bang Theory last night. Before broadcast's top show moves back to its Thursday time slot next week, it opened the night and offered a lead-in to The Millers. Big Bang, steady with a 4.4 rating among adults 18-49 in its live-plus-same-day showing, saw its lead-out shed half of that score — pulling a 2.2 in the key demo. That's steady with its freshman finale but off 33 percent from last season's premiere. The new 8:30 p.m. offering made no difference for Scorpion. CBS'

Update: In updated Nielsen national estimates released Tuesday afternoon, CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” went up two tenths in 18-49 (4.6/14, 16.02 million viewers overall), but lead-out “The Millers” lost a tenth (2.1/6 in 18-49, 8.93 million), leaving the latter with even weaker retention levels of 46% in 18-49 and 55% in total viewers. Next week, “2 Broke Girls” will kick off the night for CBS.
In its second week, low clearances due in part to a preemption in Houston for an NFL game resulted in a week-2 decline for CW’s “Jane the Virgin” (0.5/1 in 18-49, 1.36 million viewers overall), which on Tuesday was picked up for the rest of the season. Lead-in “The Originals” ended at a 0.6/2 in 18-49 and 1.27 million viewers overall.
At ABC, “Castle” lost a tenth (1.5/5 in 18-49, 8.82 million viewers overall), leaving it down 0.4 vs. last week even though lead-in “Dancing With the Stars” held steady (2.0/6 in 18-49, 12.58 million viewers overall).

TV ratings for Monday, October 20th are in. Here’s a brief rundown: NBC’s The Blacklist dropped a considerable four tenths from last week, earning a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demo and scoring 9.37 million viewers. Fox’s silly yet enjoyable Gotham (read Dave’s recap here) was also down, garnering a 2.2 rating and 5.99 million viewers for a drop of two tenths from last week. Sleepy Hollow ticked up to a 1.8 rating and scored 5 million viewers. Over on CBS, The Big Bang Theory was down a tenth to a 4.4 rating and 15.65 million viewers, while the second season premiere of The Millers earned a 2.2 rating and scored 9.13 million viewers. That’s down a tenth from last year’s season finale, but the comedy lost half of its lead-in audience from Tbbt. The new drama Scorpion was even with last week’s 2.4 rating and scored 10.52 million viewers, and NCIS: Los Angeles was »

CBS's “The Millers” got a decent demo number in its sophomore season return on Monday, but dropped 33 percent from the series debut last fall. It also couldn't compare to its powerful lead-in, “The Big Bang Theory,” which doubled the demo rating of the Will Arnett sitcom on Monday night. NBC topped Monday's primetime in ratings, while ABC had the most viewers. The latter network was preempted by NFL coverage in Pittsburgh, however, which makes its early numbers subject to change. The CW is in the same boat, as it was preempted by the NFL game in Houston. NBC was first. »

Fast National ratings for Monday, October 20, 2014. "The Voice" and "Blacklist" both dropped on Monday night, but still led NBC to victory among young viewers, while "Dancing with the Stars" carried ABC to overall victory. In addition to NBC's drops, Monday also saw a less-than-impressive season premiere for CBS' "The Millers," plus another dip for Fox's "Gotham." But there was plenty of good news on Monday as well. "Sleepy Hollow," for example, rose week-to-week for Fox. And although it was dealing with a weaker lead-in thanks to "The Millers," CBS' "Scorpion" was encouragingly flat week-to-week in the key demo, though it dipped a little in viewers. The morning's best news, though, probably came on The CW, where "Jane the Virgin" rose in its second week, seemingly capitalizing on last week's well-received premiere. Of course, The CW had an NFL preemption in Houston, so stay tuned. ABC had the Pittsburgh football preemption, »

It’s at this point that I feel the need to say that I genuinely like The Big Bang Theory. There have been many episodes, many moments, certainly, that I’ve loved. For all the haters who dismiss it, sometimes quite angrily, as an overrated, under-funny broad comedy, I could provide a list off the top of my head of what I consider classic sitcom moments from the show. And Jim Parsons’ performance as Sheldon? He’s earned those Emmys. And then there’s season eight, which, with this episode, is 25 percent done, and even the most diehard Bbt fan has to be waiting on a hint of one of those classic moments. As has been stated previously, season eight is a tough place to be. Not that many sitcoms run that long, and most that do aren’t at their peak by that point. Friends season eight was the year with Rachel’s pregnancy, »

AMC’s megahit “The Walking Dead” has padded its already gaudy season-premiere totals with about 5 million viewers in just three days of DVR playback, according to Nielsen estimates, making the zombie skein the fall’s most-watched drama telecast on any network.
In “live plus same-day” numbers for last Sunday, the fourth-season opener of “Walking Dead” averaged an 8.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 17.29 million viewers overall — series and basic-cable records in both categories. But in “live +3″ (viewership done via time-shifting within three days of a telecast), “Dead” surged to an 11.4 demo rating and 22.37 million total viewers.
Among all primetime programs this fall, only “The Big Bang Theory” (22.82 million) and “Sunday Night Football” (22.77 million) have drawn more total viewers in Live+3. “Walking Dead” moved ahead of CBS’ “NCIS” (21.52 million in L+3) after lagging the veteran crime drama in the same-night numbers.
In adults 18-49, the 11.4 towers over everything else to air in primetime this fall. »

NBC is pressing control-alt-delete on "The It Crowd."
The network is once again trying to reboot the popular British comedy. According to Deadline, uber-producer Bill Lawrence ("Cougar Town," "Scrubs") has signed a deal for a put pilot (if it doesn't air, it earns a fee).
"The It Crowd" follows the workplace shenanigans of two tech support workers who a bit socially-inept. They have to deal with a new female boss, who is a bit computer-inept.
This is the second time NBC has tried to make an American version of "The It Crowd." In 2006, it picked up a pilot starring Joel McHale of "Community," but the series never filmed more episodes. McHale then headlined "Community," which went to run for six five seasons and a movie sixth season on Yahoo.
NBC is clearly looking to shore up its comedy lineup. With the departure of "Parks and Recreation" after this season, and »

Unless you religiously follow ratings data, there’s really no way to tell at any given time how safe your favorite shows are on TV. Yes, you may think just because a show is being talked about (Gotham) or it’s been on a few years (Revenge) that it might be totally safe from cancellation, but it’s a tricky time we live in these days in the TV world, and it’s hard to really ever declare anything fully safe. Except The Big Bang Theory. That show will outlive the apocalypse. That’s why I find SpoilerTV’s Cancellation Prediction Table so useful. It’s a constantly updating table that shows which shows have been cancelled, are on the verge or cancellation, are in danger, or are probably safe. Each show is assigned a number, and the higher the number, the better a chance they have of being cancelled, »
