The very long-in-coming wedding of Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler gave CBS’ The Big Bang Theory an extra ratings booster shot Thursday.

Big Bang drew 455,814 D-FW viewers compared to 370,349 for the previous Thursday’s episode. The show also had prime-time’s biggest haul of advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds with 127,945.

CBS went on to sweep the night in total viewers with Young Sheldon, a double shot of Mom and S.W.A.T.. Among 18-to-49ers, CBS won from from 8 to 9 p.m. with the two Moms while the second half of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy whipped Young Sheldon and Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast narrowly outdrew S.W.A.T.

Here are Thursday’s local news derby results for the 11th day of the 20-weekday May “sweeps.”

CBS11 has emerged as a contender in total viewers at 10 p.m. with its fourth win in the last five days. Fox4 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds.

Fox4 also again ran the table at 6 a.m. and ran first at 5 and 6 p.m. in the 25-to-54-year-old demographic. NBC5 and TEGNA8 tied for the top spot in total viewers at 5 p.m. and TEGNA8 won outright in this measurement at 6 p.m.
