With no NFL Draft to contend with this week, CBS reclaimed its Thursday crown.
The Big Bang Theory recovered well from last week's big drop, rising four tenths. Two and a Half Men also rose four tenths. Sadly, Person of Interest and Elementary saw no such rise, matching last week's series lows. American Idol fell two tenths, setting yet another new series low this season. Glee rose a single tenth to a 1.9. The season finale of Wife Swap matched last week's season low. Grey's Anatomy saw a healthy three tenths increase. Scandal fell back down a bit after last week's series high, but is still doing great.
Community climbed up 20% to a 1.2, but it may be too little too late for Greendale. A one-hour Office rose just slightly from last week's normal episode. The Parks & Rec. season finale was a mixed bag for NBC. The comedy rose three tenths from last week, but was down slightly from last year's swan song. Hannibal managed a ever so slight increase, but is still firmly on the bubble for renewal. The Vampire Diaries stayed at a steady 1.0 for The CW. Lead-out Beauty and the Beast matched last week's 0.5.
