In a year where broadcast TV is suffering, The Big Bang Theory is doing the unthinkable. It was up a stunning million viewers and six tenths in the demo to series highs. After starting the season close to Modern Family in the ratings, it has moved into its own league. No other show is doing anything like this on TV and it seems very possible that it could continue to go higher this weekend. The halo effect continued through the night as every CBS show was up. At 8:30pm, Two and a Half Men was down two tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo for a season high. Person of Interest was down three tenths in viewers but up two tenths in the demo for a season high as it nearly tied Grey's Anatomy in the demo category. At 10pm, Elementary was down a tenth in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. 

Over on ABC, the now cancelled Last Resort was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low. The drop to a series low in the demo was probably the final nail in the coffin for this show. At 9pm, Grey's Anatomy was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo but still managed to narrowly win the hour. At 10pm, Scandal was down a tenth in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. This show seems to always go up when Grey's goes down and vice-versa. It seems like it has its own audience away from Grey's.

On FOX, The X Factor was up 1.2 million viewers and a tenth in the demo without competition from The Voice but Glee was down half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo for a series low despite the publicized "Grease" episode. This show is on its last legs. NBC was bringing up the rear on Thursday as usual. The 8pm comedies returned after two weeks off. 30 Rock was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Up All Night was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. At 9pm, The Office was down six tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo from last week when it followed an episode of The Voice. However, Parks and Recreation was unaffected by the lower lead-in as it was dead even with last week. At 10pm, Rock Center with Brian Williams was up a tenth in viewers and the demo.
