Every year, The Big Bang Theory switches from Monday back to Thursday nights. Primarily, the switch occurs due to the CBS deal with the NFL. That said, the sitcom is back to No. 1 in the ratings because of the switch.
Presently, the ranking exists as 1.) The Big Bang Theory, 2.) Young Sheldon, 3.) Mom, and then 4.) Life in Pieces. Overall, CBS is beating ABC and NBC in terms of millions of viewers per episode.
These killer ratings are what led to Young Sheldon and the success of The Big Bang Theory for the past decade.
