Two weeks into its late-season run on NBC, Thursday Night Football held even last night.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' walloping of the Tennessee Titans led all telecasts for the evening, across broadcast and cable, scoring a combined 9.4 overnight rating among households for NBC and the NFL Network. That's the same score from the week prior, one that ultimately translated to 13.1 million viewers.

Thursday's game also kept pace with the comparable game from the 2016 season, steady (and very slightly improved) from the Saints-Panthers game last November.

CBS ranked No. 2 for the night, its entire block — Big Bang Theory (2.6 adults), Young Sheldon (2.1 adults), Mom (1.4 adults), Life in Pieces (1.1 adults), SWAT (0.9 adults) — holding steady with the previous week. ABC also saw no movement from the prior week, with Grey's Anatomy leading with a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49, followed by Scandal (1.1 adults) and How to Get Away With Murder (0.9 adults).

Elsewhere, Fox had new episodes of Gotham and The Orville — each netting a 0.9 rating in the key demo. On the CW, Supernatural led with a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 before a steady Arrow (0.5 adults).
