An 8:30 PM rebroadcast of THE BIG BANG THEORY (R) (S) was first in households (7.3/12), viewers (11.99m), adults 25-54 (4.7/12) and adults 18-49 (3.7/10), beating a first run episodes of "The X Factor," "Charlie's Angels" and "Parks and Recreation."

Updated Thursday ratings will be available this afternoon.

Note: DVR penetration is at 42%, up from 38% last year. Last fall, Live+7 audiences for original entertainment series on CBS gained over 1.8 million viewers, on average, over Live+ Same Day ratings, more than any other network. This season, we expect DVR penetration to continue to increase and, as a result, we expect DVR playback audiences to grow as well.
