The boys of "The Big Bang Theory" are slowly but stalwartly taking down the Death Star.

The geek comedy also pulled in more viewers overall, according to early figures from Nielsen, drawing 15.96 million viewers in the 8-8:30 slot compared with "Idol's" 15.46 million. "Idol" did better in its second half hour and wound up averaging nearly 17 million viewers for the broadcast — still good, but down markedly from a year ago. —Yvonne Villarreal ABBA reissue has new track Mamma Mia, here they go again.
