Old Episodes of ‘Big Bang Theory’ Are the Hottest Thing Since New Episodes of ‘Big Bang Theory’
The hottest show this summer isn’t The Bachelorette or America’s Got Talent, like in previous years, it’s Big Bang Theory. Last week a CBS repeat of the show brought in a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demo, tying a new episode of America’s Got Talent and beating everything else. Not to mention this number is up 40% from the same time last year. And the syndication numbers are equally as impressive, averaging almost 9 million viewers a night. Moreover, last Wednesday’s 10:30pm repeat beat out all scripted cable shows, new or syndicated, excluding the premiere of Breaking Bad. Maybe, and I’m just spit-balling, Community should try to do a Big Bang Theory homage, every episode, and ideally air it on CBS – it will be a ratings smash!
