Fast affiliate ratings give CBS bragging rights among broadcast networks for Thursday night. A block of repeats — including an especially strong The Big Bang Theory — brought in a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.4 million viewers.
Duets didn’t do so swell in its second outing for ABC. The two-hour follow-up to last week’s premiere pulled a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49, a drop of two-tenths of a point and was down nearly 1 million in total viewers. Rookie Blue was even with last week’s 1.4 rating in the demo, giving the network a 1.5 adults rating for the night and 5.9 million viewers.
Fox’s freshman drama Touch went out with a two-hour finale Thursday night, unable to approach its strong premiere numbers without an American Idol lead-in. It hit a series-low 1.3 adults 18-49 rating in both hours, down four-tenths of a point from its previous original May 17. Although the Kiefer Sutherland series did see dips throughout its initial run, it held steady enough ratings to get a renewal and will air on Fridays in the new season.
On NBC, encores of The Office led into a two-hour America’s Got Talent repeat. The network averaged a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 for the night and 3.7 million viewers.
The premiere of ballet drama Breaking Pointe earned a 0.3 rating on The CW, matching the network’s recent low debuts of The L.A. Complex and The Catalina.
