‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch
It turns out there’s enough to go around ratings-wise on Thursday night. NBC has taken hold of the Thursday Night Football package, which it shares with CBS (both of whom simulcast with NFL Network), and its fortunes on the night have grown substantially. Now with two nights of NFL, plus staples like “This Is Us” and “The Voice,” NBC easily won the week ending November 12 in adults 18-49, and scored its first total viewers victory of the season.

But on Thursday nights, ABC and CBS also have reason to crow in the 8 p.m. hour: “Grey’s Anatomy,” which just hit its 300th episode, remains a potent force. And “Young Sheldon” is developing into a new hit behind “The Big Bang Theory.” (Also in the hour, Fox’s “Gotham” and The CW’s “Supernatural” also perform relatively respectably, although not nearly at the same level).

The Big Bang Theory: Season 11 Ratings

  • TVSeriesFinale
Fans don't have to worry whether The Big Bang Theory TV show will be cancelled too soon. Back in March of 2017, CBS renewed it through season 12. The Chuck Lorre - Bill Prady sitcom remains one of the highest-rated network TV shows on network television, even though its numbers have dropped over the years. Still, even the most successful TV shows have a shelf-life. As its price tag increases and the audience drifts away, will The Big Bang Theory be cancelled or renewed beyond seasons 11 and 12? Stay tuned. A CBS scripted comedy, The Big Bang Theory stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Mayim Bialik, Simon Helberg, Melissa Rauch, Kunal Nayyar, and Kaley Cuoco. The revolves around a group of brilliant scientists who are still somewhat socially inept, despite their progress over the years. Read More…

CBS’ Paired ‘The Big Bang Theory’ And ‘Sheldon’ Dominate Flat Thursday

While NBC ruled ratings Thursday with NFL football, CBS dominated non-pigskin programming. The night’s top two entertainment shows, CBS’ The Big Bang Theory (2.6 demo rating, 13.2 million total viewers) and Young Sheldon (2.1, 11.7M), experienced slight slippage week to week, and the net’s 10 Pm rookie S.W.A.T.

'Big Bang Theory' Sneak Peek: Penny and Leonard Have a Spat -- and Sheldon Crashes the Party! (Exclusive)

'Big Bang Theory' Sneak Peek: Penny and Leonard Have a Spat -- and Sheldon Crashes the Party! (Exclusive)
Sheldon Cooper has the worst timing.

In Et’s exclusive sneak peek from Thursday’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) unintentionally crashes Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny’s (Kaley Cuoco) innocent spat about a documentary they watched the night before. (Spoiler: Penny wasn’t a fan!)

When Leonard makes the same joke about the doc, Penny is not amused. “I already pretended to laugh at that joke once, do I have to do it again?” she bemoans, but eventually caters to Leonard’s wishes.

Seconds later, Sheldon interrupts their lovers’ quarrel and asks Leonard to drive him to work, but gets mysteriously coy when he’s asked why he can’t make it to a Tesla coil exhibition with the crew. “I couldn’t tell you even if I wanted to,” Sheldon says.

The Big Bang Theory season 11 episode 7 review: The Geology Methodology

11.7 The Geology Methodology

Bert’s back! I like Bert, he was one of the better additions of last season, and he really does bring a different energy to the show. That’s as true as ever here, as his kind innocence rubs up against Sheldon’s narcissism and hostility towards ‘lesser’ sciences.

The trouble starts when Bert asks Sheldon for help on a project that would interest the both of them. Sheldon refuses at first because no matter how interesting it is, ‘it’s still geology’, but eventually he decides to participate in secret.

How the Online Gambling Industry Hurts TV

At first glance, it mightn’t seem as though there’s necessarily much of a connection between online gambling and the television industry, and so it’s difficult to see immediately how one may affect the other. Different media, different audiences, different business models.

However, while big internet gambling firms may not be directly impacting on the business of television production (apart from the fact that they take eyeballs away from the major networks, pay TV, and legal streaming sites like Netflix), it is rather their advertising strategies that are indirectly, yet most significantly, impacting on the world of TV.

This is because large, multi-national online betting companies have taken to paying for pop-up advertising on popular illegal streaming sites, which has significantly contributed to their rapid and widespread proliferation. Very few enterprises can say no when big gambling comes calling, and so internet betting’s presence in the murky

Young Sheldon Season 1 Episode 3 Review – ‘Poker, Faith and Eggs’

Martin Carr reviews the third episode of Young Sheldon

Annie Potts inhabits the mythical Mee Maw of Sheldon’s childhood with style. Introduced as a fun loving, free spirited older woman this grandmother is not to be messed with. Babysitting in the loosest sense while Sheldon, George and Missy are let off the chain to run wild. This Mee Maw is the stuff of legend and everything grandparents should be. Non-judgemental, unflinchingly supportive with a hint of benevolent mischief thrown in for good measure. That is what Potts manages to encapsulate in this compact episode of Sheldon’s Wonder Years.

As noted last week Young Sheldon does not go down the conventional route of conflict resolution, but rather peppers each show with life lessons. Armitage, Zoe Perry and Lance Barber still hold centre stage but the small town nostalgia purposely colours every moment. There are callbacks to Big Bang threads

Young Sheldon Review: Meemaw Tries (And Fails) To Teach Sheldon To Bluff

Young Sheldon is giving another familiar name in Sheldon’s world a new face. The only person Sheldon loves more in the world besides Amy and his mother is his Meemaw. First played by Academy Award nominated actress June Squibb on The Big Bang Theory, Meemaw is known as the person with a bit of a stronger hand who guided Sheldon. Yet she still had that sweetness about her every time she called her grandson ‘Moonpie’. Meemaw’s younger version is played by Designing Women‘s Annie Potts with equal parts hilarity and wise cracks. She has no nonsense answers for Sheldon, which

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Scores 9-Month High With 300th Episode; ‘Big Bang Theory’ Tops Scripted Thursday

On the night when the NFL Thursday Night Football package shifted over to NBC, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy (1.9 demo rating, 8.1 million viewers) celebrated its 300th episode with its biggest overall crowd in nine months, and a 6% week-to-week build-up in the demo. But CBS’s The Big Bang Theory (2.7, 13.58M) and Young Sheldon (2.2, 12.3M) were the night’s most watched shows, and highest rated demo-wise. Those two comedies’ stats could shift when final data arrives, with Bb…

Ratings: NBC Tops Primetime With ‘Thursday Night Football’ Kickoff Game

  • The Wrap
NBC just inherited “Thursday Night Football” from CBS, and the top-rated broadcaster rode last night’s Seattle Seahawks win to a victory of its own. While NBC finished first among adults 18-49 — the group most-coveted by broadcast advertisers — CBS is currently No. 1 among primetime’s total viewers. Due to the nature of live sports, NBC’s Nielsen numbers are subject to significant adjustment when final figures become available. Over on ABC, the 300th episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” did well, but it wasn’t enough to topple the NFL game or CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.” Also Read: Ratings: Cma Awards Dominate Wednesday -.
