TV Ratings: 'Big Bang' Leads a Steady Thursday
Facing the NFL for the first time in months, broadcast's original offerings fared well on the first night of the league's draft — which aired on ESPN and the NFL Network.
"Well" meant steady for the night's top programs. On CBS, The Big Bang Theory led with a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49, while The Odd Couple (1.8 adults), Mom (1.8 adults), 2 Broke Girls (1.6 adults) and Rush Hour (0.9 adults) were all in line with last week's performances.
The same goes for ABC, which saw Grey's Anatomy (1.9 adults), Scandal (1.6 adults) and The Catch (1.0 adults) all within a tenth of a point of last week's same-day showings.
NBC had new episodes of Strong (0.7 adults), The Blacklist (1.2 adults) and Game of Silence (0.7 adults), while Fox had original Bones (0.8 adults) and American Grit (0.7 adults).
Continuing the night's steady trend, Legends of Tomorrow (0.7 adults) and The 100 (0.5 adults) were in line on the CW.
