bad judge ratings january 1 2015 nbc TV ratings: 'Bad Judge' and 'A to Z' drop to lowest ratings yet as reruns rule New Year's Day

If the Fast National ratings for Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014, proved anything, it’s the strength of reruns.
While new episodes of the already canceled “Bad Judge” and “A to Z” brought in their lowest ratings yet — each show shed over a million viewers compared to their last new episodes — repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” were flying high.
The comedies propelled CBS to winning the night with an average of 5.2 million viewers and a 3.3 ratings/5 share in households. FOX (2.8 million, 1.8/3) came in second, followed by ABC (2.5 million, 1.7/3), NBC (2.2 million, 1.4/2) and The CW (1.0 million, 0.6/1)
CBS also led the night in the adults 18-49 demographic with a 1.0. They were followed by a three-way tie for second, with ABC, NBC and FOX all snagging a 0.6. The CW brought up the rear with a 0.3.
