Primetime Ratings, Thursday, 4/25/13

Hannibal

CBS won Thursday in both the 18-49 demo and total viewer races. No broadcast network can really claim a victory though, as cable's coverage of the 2013 NFL Draft (airing on ESPN and the NFL Network) completely destroyed everything in its path. We covered that story in full here.

The Big Bang Theory took a steep seven tenths drop from last week, tying a previous season low. Two and a Half Men followed that up by posting a series low, down over a full point from last week. Person of Interest also set a new series low of 2.4. Elementary scored (what else) a series low, dipping to a 2.0. American Idol hit its own series low of 2.8 for FOX. Glee dropped three tenths to a 1.8.

ABC's Wife Swap fell four tenths to a season low. Grey's Anatomy fell only a single tenth from its last new episode, making it one of the only shows to emerge relatively unscathed. Lead-out Scandal was the only show to actually rise on this night of blood-letting, rising to a 2.8 and actually beating Grey's Anatomy's demos for the first time.

NBC had their usual blah Thursday, with Community tying its series low, Parks & Rec. hitting a season low, and Hannibal falling four tenths to a somewhat worrying 1.0. The soon departing Office also fell two tenths. The Vampire Diaries continues to hold strong for The CW, matching its last new outing. This is great news for the upcoming TVD spin-off "The Originals", as last night's episode served as the "back-door pilot" for the series. Beauty and the Beast dropped a single tenth.
