As is usual for Thursday, CBS dominated the night in all measures.
The Big Bang Theory set a new series high, after just hitting a series high last week. Never doubt the power of Sheldon Cooper dressed as Lt. Commander Data. Two and a Half Men actually went down from last week, oddly enough. Person Of Interest and Elementary also dropped a little. FOX's Mobbed went up a bit, but continues to do poorly.
ABC's Last Resort and Grey's Anatomy both went up a little, while Scandal rose four tenths to a season high. Scandal has gone a long way to ensuring a third season as of late. 30 Rock and The Office both went up small amounts, as they continue the march to their respective ends. The regular timeslot premiere of 1600 Penn dropped over half a point from its "sneak preview" debut last month. Rock Center rose a tiny bit. There was good news and bad news for the CW. The bad news is that the 2012 Critic's Choice Movie Awards only scored an 0.6 demo. The good news is that an 0.6 is the ceremony's best number since the 2006 edition.
