It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

 

ABC and CBS split the Halloween night victory.

The annual airing of 'It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown' was down by five tenths when compared to last Halloween, but still easily outperformed ABC's usual showing in its timeslot. 'Grey's Anatomy' fell two tenths to a 2.6, tying its previous series low. 'Scandal' matched last week's season low of 2.9; still dominating 10 p.m. regardless.

Without a new episode of 'The Big Bang Theory' as its lead-in, 'The Millers' plunged six tenths to a 2.1 for CBS. 'The Crazy Ones' took its own large drop, falling four tenths to a 1.9. 'Elementary' matched last week's 1.8., and now looks more likely to be renewed than not. A 'Saturday Night Live' Halloween special vastly surpassed what 'Parks & Recreation' and 'Welcome to the Family' have been pulling down in the same time period.

'Sean Saves the World' and 'The Michael J. Fox Show' have officially entered a stalemate, with both comedies posting 1.1 demos. I still think 'The MJF Show' is the more likely of the two to be renewed at this point though. 'Sean's prior lows have tended to be lower than 'Fox's. 'Parenthood' dropped a tenth to a 1.2. 'The Vampire Diaries' tumbled down four tenths to a 0.9 for The CW, but I'd suspect that a large chunk of its fanbase was busy celebrating the holiday instead of watching TV. 'Reign' matched the 0.6 it earned last week.
