NBC won Thursday night in all measures.
The big story of the night is the tremendous success of 'The Sound of Music Live.' The musical starring Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer drew a 4.6, coming in behind only 'The Big Bang Theory' in the 18-49 demo race. This represents NBC's best (non-sports) Thursday performance since the 'ER' series finale way back in 2009. The TVs were truly alive with the 'Sound of Music.'
Elsewhere, 'The Big Bang Theory' half a point to a season low of 4.8. Still, when that's your low, you're doing pretty well for yourself. The downward trend continued, with 'The Millers' dropping four tenths to a 2.4, and 'The Crazy Ones' dipping a single tenth to a 2.1. Surprisingly, 'Two and a Half Men' reversed this course, rising two tenths to a 2.3. 'Elementary' matched its last new episode's 1.8.
'Once Upon A Time in Wonderland' stayed flat with its series low of 0.9, and remains a goner. 'Grey's Anatomy' fell three tenths to a 2.3, an all time low for the veteran medical drama. 'Scandal' continues to be a powerhouse at 10 p.m., rising back up to a 3.0.
'The X-Factor' recovered decently from last week's series low, climbing up four tenths to a 1.4. 'Glee' also hit a series low last week, but only managed to rise two tenths to a 1.1. 'The Vampire Diaries' took a rare hit, dropping three tenths to a 1.0 for The CW. 'Reign' also fell back to its old 0.6. rating.
