THE RUNDOWN: Thursday, September 29

Check below this post for a review of Suburgatory! 

ABC
8:00 Charlie's Angels #2 "Runway Angels"
9:00 Grey's Anatomy #151 "Take the Lead"
10:00 Private Practice #77 "God Laughs" (Season Premiere)
ABC is all new on Thursday starting with Week 2 of Charlie's Angels which got off to a ho-hum start and has terrible reviews. It wouldn't be surprising to see it drop into the 1s for the demo, which would be very low for ABC. Grey's Anatomy is diluted but shouldn't drop as much and the new season of Private Practice should premiere at ok but not great numbers.
Prediction: Charlie's - 7.5 million, 1.8/Grey's - 9.6 million, 3.8/Practice - 7.5 million, 3.0

CBS
8:00 The Big Bang Theory #90 "The Pulled Groin Extrapolation"
8:30 How to Be a Gentleman #1 "Pilot" (SERIES PREMIERE)
9:00 Person of Interest #2 "Ghosts"
10:00 The Mentalist #72 "Little Red Book"
CBS will be an interesting network to watch on Thursday night. The Big Bang Theory should be very solid again but the series premiere of How to Be a Gentleman may be underwhelming as the show has gotten very negative reviews. Even if it does manage to debut well, it likely won't hold up. Another show to watch is week two of Person of Interest. The show didn't have a great start in the demo and it could go down some this week which would be troubling for such a high profile timeslot. The Mentalist shouldn't drop much from last week.
Prediction: Big Bang - 13.4 million, 4.7/Gentleman - 10.5 million, 3.3/Interest - 12.1 million, 2.8/Mentalist - 13.4 million, 2.9

NBC
8:00 Community #51 "Geography of Global Conflict"
8:30 Parks and Recreation #48 "Ron & Tammys"
9:00 The Office #154 "The Incentive"
9:30 Whitney #2 "First Date"
10:00 Prime Suspect #2 "Carnivorous Sheep"
NBC has another week of its comedy lineup. The 8-9pm hour can't drop much from its terrible performance last week, can it? It could be up with only one Big Bang Theory and perhaps less sampling of Charlie's Angels and X-Factor. The Office might be down without the curiosity factor while Whitney will likely have a decent sized drop from its premiere. Prime Suspect got off to a rough start but it may not see a huge drop. If it does, NBC's problems will continue to pile up.
Prediction: Community - 3.9 million, 1.8/Parks - 4.3 million, 2.2/Office - 6.9 million, 3.5/Whitney - 5.7 million, 2.9/Suspect - 5.5 million, 1.7

FOX
8:00 The X-Factor
The ratings for Wednesday's edition will give us a better indication of how The X-Factor will do in its second Thursday. I expect the drop won't be horrible but the overall numbers will be very disappointing.
Prediction: X Factor - 11.5 million, 4.0
