The Big Bang Theory: Season Seven Ratings

big bang theory season sevenThe ratings for The Big Bang Theory have been growing each year and season six was the sitcom’s best yet. Will they continue to grow, level off, or start to fall? Will it remain the top-rated show on CBS? We shall see.

The Big Bang Theory revolves around a group of geeky scientists, their friends and significant others. The castmembers are Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch, and Mayim Bialik.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    One of the best comedies on TV for the past 10+ seasons. With Leonard & Penny getting married, it will certainly move into a new phase with Sheldon dealing with the changes. I see it lasting at least a couple more seasons.

    This show is getting boring. Episode after episode. Fans are stupid people who don’t see that first season was the best, now between Sheldon who has a “girlfriend” … is stupid already. they should cancel while they still can.

      Sheldon has a girlfriend but he still has all the quirks and all the awkwardness that makes him Sheldon, and is not like Amy is a “regular” girl she has some quirks on her own, so the fact that these two people are together and trying to make it work is hilarious.

      I think that Sheldon’s girlfriend was a genius move nobody ever thought that Sheldon could have a girlfriend and still be Sheldon.

      I don’t think that one season is better than other, in my opinion the whole show is amazing and I laugh with every episode no matter which season.

    The later seasons are not as good as the earlier ones. My opinion is that this show should end on a high note not when it becomes boring and stale. It’s heading in that direction.

    Love this show! Renew.
    I heart Johnny Galecki + Kaley Cuoco.
    From the last episode I really enjoyed the Neil Diaond click between Amy and Howard.
