ABC and CBS shared the demo on Thursday night, with CBS’ The Big Bang Theory naturally topping the pack.
The comedy hovered near a personal-low 2.8 rating among adults 18-49, but was still heads above the rest — also averaging 13 million viewers. Fellow comedies The Great Indoors (1.4 adults), Mom (1.5 adults) and Life in Pieces (1.3 adults) were also steady.
On ABC, both Grey’s Anatomy (1.9 adults) and Scandal (1.4 adults) were off a shade from their most recent originals. The latter dropped a bit more, shedding two-tenths of a point in the key demo.
Fellow Shonda Rhimes-produced drama The Catch returned unmoved from its very modest freshman run. But, on the bright side, it’s not like anything at 10 o’clock is popping on Thursdays. Its 0.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.8 million viewers tied (in both measures) The Blacklist: Redemption on NBC. (CBS’ Training Day trailed, in the demo at least, averaging a 0.7 rating.)
Powerless was slightly improved on NBC. The comedy averaged a 0.8 rating in the key demo, up despite its encore lead-in. At 9 p.m., Chicago Med (1.2 adults) dipped after last week’s crossover-lifted episode.
On Fox, Kicking & Screaming entered the schedule with just a 0.7 rating in the key demo. That followed a flat episode of MasterChef Junior (1.1 adults). The CW saw Supernatural (0.5 adults) and Riverdale (0.4 adults) even with last week, but the network didn’t see pre-emptions in several markets.
