Live+7 Ratings for Week of March 4: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Narrowly Tops ‘This Is Us’

The last episode of “The Big Bang Theory” before the show’s grand finale narrowly beat out “This Is Us” to top the Live+7 ratings chart for the week of March 4.

The CBS megahit, which will come to an end after 12 seasons with a double bill airing on April 4, achieved a 3.6 rating in the key 18-49 demo, with NBC’s “This Is Us” coming in just behind at a 3.5. The former saw a 71% ratings bump from a 2.1, and and the latter more than doubled its rating in delayed viewing from a 1.7.

“Bing Bang Theory” was also the most-watched show of the week, with a total viewership of over 17.5 million.

Elsewhere, 12 shows grew by 100% or more in the ratings, including ABC’s “The Good Doctor,” which jumped from a 1.1 to a 2.4, and NBC’s “The Blacklist,” which increased from a 0.5 rating to a 1.2.
