CBS won Thursday night in all measures.
With no live musical to compete with this week, 'The Big Bang Theory' rose two tenths to a 5.1. 'The Millers' also rose two tenths to a 2.6. 'The Crazy Ones' fell to a 1.9, a new series low for the freshman comedy. 'Two and a Half Men' also posted a 1.9, setting a new series low for that show as well.
The only CBS show after 9 p.m. to not sustain a large drop was 'Elementary,' which decreased by only a single tenth to a 1.7. When almost every show on a given network drops, yet that network still wins the ratings battle, that should really give its competition pause. CBS has truly developed a stranglehold on Thursday nights.
'Once Upon A Time in Wonderland' continues to wallow in the ratings muck, dropping to a new demo low of 0.8. 'Grey's Anatomy' bucked the night's downward trend, rising four tenths to a 2.7. 'Scandal' also rose, but to a lesser degree, increasing two tenths to a 3.2.
'The Sing-Off' is bottoming out incredibly quickly, plunging another five tenths to a 1.3. What looked like a promising return on Monday has rapidly fallen in line with NBC's usual dismal ratings average. 'Sean Saves the World' and 'The Michael J. Fox Show' remained in their usual range, earning a 1.0 and a 0.9 respectively. 'Parenthood' also matched its last original episode's 1.2.
'The X-Factor' dipped to a 1.2 for FOX, down two tenths from last Thursday. Finally, The CW had an okay night, with 'The Vampire Diaries' rising a smidge to a 1.1 and 'Reign' garnering its standard 0.6. I still have my doubts about 'Reign's chances for a second season, but on a network where 'Nikita' spent a whole season earning 0.2s and still got renewed, anything can happen.
