TV Ratings: 'Great Indoors' Solid in Post-'Bang' Thursday Debut
With its post-NFL Thursday lineup in place, CBS won the night in both the key demo and total viewers.
The Big Bang Theory made an even transition from Mondays, topping the night with a 3.4 rating among adults 18-49 before the premiere of The Great Indoors. The latest multi-cam effort from CBS opened with a 2.0 rating in the key demo and 9.3 million viewers. Among adults 18-49, it marked a slight uptick from the time slot's year-ago showing.
Mom returned with a steady 1.6 rating among adults 18-49, while Life in Pieces dipped to a 1.5 rating in the key demo in its new time slot. At 10 p.m., Pure Genius made a rather unassuming debut with a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 and 6.6 million viewers. For its first same-day showing, it tied ABC's How to Get Away With Murder and NBC's The Blacklist in the key demo.
Elsewhere on ABC, Grey's Anatomy earned an even 2.2 rating among adults 18-49. Notorious, now with the season's first shortened order, earned just a 0.8 rating.
NBC saw lifts for Superstore (1.3 adults), The Good Place (1.1 adults) and Chicago Med (1.4 adults). And, on Fox, Rosewood and Pitch each earned a 0.8 rating in the key demo. The CW had steady outings of Legends of Tomorrow and Supernatural, also tied with 0.6 ratings among adults 18-49.
