CBS won the night in both the key demos and total viewers. The Big Bang Theory rose a bit to a 4.9. Two and a Half Men climbed up 12% to a 3.8. Person of Interest dropped 7% to a season low of 2.7. Elementary tied a previous series low of 2.1.
American Idol matched last week's series low. New Girl fell 9% to a 2.0. The Mindy Project went up a bit, landing at 1.4. Wife Swap dipped 14% for ABC. Grey's Anatomy fell two tenths. Scandal rose 4%, and won 10pm.
Community earned yet another series low, making it ever more likely that we won't be spending a fifth year with the Greendale gang. Parks & Recreation dropped a single tenth. The Office began its home stretch to the tune of a series low. Ouch. Go On made its 9:30 debut, crashing down 42% to a 1.1. Double ouch.
The bright spot of the night for the Peacock was the series premiere of Hannibal, which came in a ridiculous 78% above the premiere of Do No Harm that aired in the same slot a few months back. Interestingly, it actually came in 20% below the premiere of Awake from early 2012. Still, our favorite cannibal drew the biggest Thursday at 10pm audience for NBC in over a year.
