THE RUNDOWN: Thursday, April 14

ABC
8:00 Wipeout
9:00 Grey's Anatomy #140 "PYT (Pretty Young Thing)" (REPEAT)
10:00 Private Practice #63 "Can't Find My Way Back Home" (REPEAT)
ABC is new at 8pm with Wipeout which should be around normal levels, maybe slightly up from last week. Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice are repeats and will be low.
Prediction: Wipeout - 7.0 million, 2.0/Grey's - 4.2 million, 1.3/Practice - 3.1 million, 1.0

CBS
8:00 The Big Bang Theory #74 "The Justice League Recombination" (REPEAT)
8:30 Rules of Engagement #55 "Mannequin Head Ball" (REPEAT)
9:00 CSI #236 "Bump and Grind" (REPEAT)
10:00 The Mentalist #50 "Red Carpet Treatment" (REPEAT)
CBS is in repeats with its regular lineup. These shows encore fairly well so they should do fine for repeat numbers.
Prediction: Big Bang - 8.6 million, 2.4/Rules - 7.8 million, 2.1/CSI - 9.0 million, 1.9/Mentalist - 9.9 million, 2.0

NBC
8:00 Community #45 "Competitive Wine Tasting"
8:30 The Paul Reiser Show #1 "The Father's Occupation" (SERIES PREMIERE)
9:00 The Office #146 "Training Day"
9:30 Parks and Recreation #39 "Fancy Party"
10:00 30 Rock #99 "I Heart Connecticut"
10:30 Outsourced #20 "Mama Sutra"
NBC is all new on Thursday night including the premiere of The Paul Reiser Show. But being in NBC's Thursday lineup, look for it to have a soft debut. Plus NBC doesn't seem to have high expectations with limited promotion and a very late debut. The Office however should certainly get a bump with guest star Will Ferrell, the countdown to Steve Carell's finale, and repeats on CBS and ABC. That bump might impact the rest of the night positively.
Prediction: Community - 4.8 million, 1.8/Paul Reiser - 4.5 million, 1.4/Office - 8.5 million, 3.9/Parks - 5.5 million, 2.6/30 Rock - 4.7 million, 2.2/Outsourced - 3.9 million, 1.6

FOX
8:00 American Idol
9:00 Bones #124 "The Truth in the Myth"
FOX is all new with its regular lineup. American Idol should be strong as usual and Bones only has competition from NBC, so it could be up this week.
Prediction: Idol - 21.9 million, 6.5/Bones - 11.0 million, 3.3
