Primetime Ratings, Thursday, 1/17/13

Parks & Recreation

In an unusual circumstance, FOX won Thursday in both the key demo and total viewers due to night two of the American Idol premiere. CBS, the normal Thursday night king, took the night off. Apparently they decided not to go one on one with AI quite yet.

Speaking of Idol, while it dropped four tenths from last night, it matched 2012's night two. The entire ABC line-up (Last Resort, Grey's Anatomy, and Scandal) all experienced drops of a few tenths. 30 Rock and The Office both dropped small amounts. Parks & Recreation hopped timeslots, moving to 8:30. The move was a good one, as it went up four tenths. 1600 Penn took a big hit for the second straight week, and this is obviously not a good sign for the show's future. The Vampire Diaries continues to do well for the CW, going up to a 1.4.
