TV Ratings: 'The Blacklist' Hits New Low, 'Grey's Anatomy' Still Strong
Grey's Anatomy might not have sustained last week's improved score, but the follow-up to the big cast exit brought a sustained 2.6 rating among adults 18-49 for the entire two-hour episode. That was off just two-tenths of a point from the previous one-hour episode ahead of a steady American Crime (1.0 adults).
The Big Bang Theory was at a season low, off four-tenths of a point but still the biggest thing of the night with a 3.2 demo rating. The Odd Couple (2.0 adults), the season finale of Mom (2.0 adults) and Elementary (1.2 adults) all held with last week.
The Blacklist was also down on Thursday, with a series low 1.2 rating with adults 18-49. It fell two-tenths of a point from last week. Dateline's Blacklist-themed outing at 10 p.m. brought a steady 0.9 rating in the key demo.
Both Bones (0.9 adults) and Backstrom (0.7 adults) were steady with last week, albeit each off a tenth of a point.
The Vampire Diaries (0.5 adults) and Reign (0.3 adults) also logged series lows in same-day showings.
