Live+3 Ratings for Week of April 15: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Back on Top

Without any NCAA basketball or “This Is Us” to get in its way, “The Big Bang Theory” returned to the top of the Live+3 rankings for the week of April 15.

The behemoth CBS show, which only has a few episodes to go before it waves goodbye to audiences, posted a 2.9 rating in delayed viewing, a 53% jump from its Live+Same Day rating of 1.9. In terms of delayed total viewership, “Big Bang” was topped by an extremely narrow margin by “NCIS,” with the latter posting 14.70 million total viewers to the former’s 14.65 million.

Elsewhere in a slow ratings week, the series premiere of “Bless This Mess” on ABC didn’t show much growth in Live+3, moving from a 0.9 to a 1.3, or a 44% bump.

Read the full week’s rankings below.
