As is usual for Thursday, CBS ran away with both the demo and total viewership races.
The Big Bang Theory dropped a decent amount, but still crushed the competition in all measures. Meanwhile, Two and a Half Men matched last week, as did Person Of Interest. Elementary dipped a little, but not too much. On FOX, The X-Factor fell two tenths of a point, while Glee came in even with last week.
Over on ABC, Last Resort rose two tenths from last week's series low. Grey's Anatomy dropped a tiny bit, while fellow Shonda Rhimes drama Scandal climbed up to a season high. NBC's Thursday night comedy block continues to wallow in the muck. The Office recovered a bit from last week's series low, but 30 Rock, Up All Night, and Parks & Rec. all came in below a 1.6. Rock Center rose a bit. As for the CW, Vampire Diaries experienced a noticeable drop, but still did quite well for the network. On the other hand, Beauty & The Beast dropped to a pathetic 0.5.
