Ratings Game: Big Bang Theory Exploded on TV Last Night

Big Bang Theory Cast and Creators
Moving The Big Bang Theory from its Monday schedule to Thursday was in fact a smart choice as the networks have seen now. The series, now on it's third season, dominated the night and even helped pull newcomer, $#*! My Dad Says.

Community couldn't match up to BBT. I happen to like both series and its cases like this that makes me glad I could watch and enjoy these shows separately, without having to flip through channels.

Justin Beiber's acting debut did nothing to pick up CSI. It's really not the same without Grissom.

Elsewhere, new show Outsource did pretty decently while the other newcomer for the night, My Generation, lost. Yeah, I did not get that show, too.
