    A SPECIAL ENCORE OF “THE BIG BANG THEORY” IS MONDAY’S MOST WATCHED BROADCAST PROGRAM

  3. STupid scheduling. The Rose bowl among other things had some record setting ratings. Holiday programming seems to work here for sports and nothing more.

    NOw I have to wait another 3 weeks for an all new Lucifer.
