The sixth season premiere of RULES OF ENGAGEMENT delivered its best fall premiere in viewers and key demographics since 2007, while THE BIG BANG THEORY matched its highest adult 18-49 rating for a regularly-scheduled Thursday broadcast, according to Nielsen preliminary live plus same day ratings for Oct. 20.

THE BIG BANG THEORY was the night's top broadcast in households, viewers, adults 25-54 and adults 18-49 for the fifth consecutive week. THE BIG BANG THEORY posted Thursday highs for a regularly-scheduled episode in adults 25-54, matched Thursday regularly scheduled highs in adults 18-49 and posted the second largest Thursday audience for a regularly-scheduled episode.

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT (P) was first in adults 25-54 (5.0/12), adults 18-49 (3.7/10) and second in both households (6.8/11) and viewers (11.47m).

THE MENTALIST was second behind FOX's baseball in households (8.1/13), viewers (12.50m), adults 25-54 (3.7/09) and adults 18-49 (2.5/07). Compared to last week, THE MENTALIST was up +4% in households (from 7.8/13), +6% in adults 25-54 (from 3.5/08), even in adults 18-49 and added +110,000 viewers (from 12.39m, +1%).

For the night, CBS was tied for first in adults 25-54 (4.5/11, with FOX's baseball), second behind FOX's baseball in households (7.8/12), viewers (12.62m) and adults 18-49 (3.2/09).

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.
