8:00 Charlie's Angels #7 "Royal Angels"
9:00 Grey's Anatomy #157 "Dark was the Night"
10:00 Private Practice #83 "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough"
ABC is all new on Thursday night starting with the last scheduled of the cancelled Charlie's Angels. One episode remains unscheduled. Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice follow and could be up a few ticks, possibly due to repeats on CBS at 9pm or extra promotion off the CMA Awards.
Prediction: Charlies - 5.2 million, 1.2/Grey's - 10.3 million, 3.8/Practice - 6.9 million, 2.7
8:00 The Big Bang Theory #96 "The Ornithophobia Diffusion"
8:30 Rules of Engagement #76 "Nature Calls"
9:00 Person of Interest #2 "Ghosts" (REPEAT)
10:00 The Mentalist #59 "Red Alert" (REPEAT)
CBS is starting off with the comedies with The Big Bang Theory fresh off a Thursday high. It's showing no signs of slowing down and could actually be up again. Oddly, CBS is airing repeats during sweeps of its two dramas. It will be interesting to see how Person of Interest repeats.
Prediction: Big Bang - 16.2 million, 5.5/Rules - 11.7 million, 3.7
8:00 Community #56 "Studies in Modern Movement"
8:30 Parks and Recreation #53 "The Treaty"
9:00 The Office #159 "Pam's Replacement"
9:30 Whitney #7 "Getting to Know You"
10:00 Prime Suspect #7 "Wednesday's Child"
NBC is all new with its low-rated lineup. Last week, shows rebounded from the Halloween week but I wouldn't expect them to keep going up. There should be a mix of small rises or drops among the sitcoms. Perhaps Prime Suspect will benefit with a repeat of The Mentalist on CBS but not by much.
Prediction: Community - 3.6 million, 1.7/Parks - 4.1 million, 2.0/Office - 5.9 million, 3.1/Whitney - 4.2 million, 2.0/Suspect - 4.6 million, 1.3
8:00 The X-Factor
9:00 Bones #131 "The Hot Dog in the Competition"
FOX is all new with its combo of The X-Factor and Bones. X-Factor should be similar to last week while Bones could be down a hair from last week's season premiere.
Prediction: X Factor - 11.4 million, 3.7/Bones - 9.5 million, 3.1
