THE RUNDOWN: Thursday, November 1

Check back later for the Freshman Scorecard for November!

ABC
8:00 46th Annual CMA Awards (SPECIAL)
ABC has the CMA Awards which usually airs on Wednesday. This is always a big ratings draw (last year drew 16.4 million viewers and a 4.8 demo) and I expect this year to be no different. ABC will surely use it to promote both Nashville and Malibu Country.

CBS
8:00 The Big Bang Theory #117 "The Extract Obliteration"
8:30 Two and a Half Men #207 "Ferrets, Attack"
9:00 Person of Interest #28 "Bury the Lede"
10:00 Elementary #5 "Lesser Evils"
CBS is all new with its regular lineup. I think the 8pm hour will be down a bit from last week's Halloween-infused Big Bang Theory numbers. I think the dramas will be steady or maybe even up without competing ABC dramas.
Prediction: Big Bang - 15.2 million, 4.7/Men - 12.5 million, 3.6/Person - 14.5 million, 3.0/Elementary - 10.8 million, 2.3

NBC
8:00 The Voice (REPEAT)
10:00 Rock Center with Brian Williams
NBC opted to postpone its comedy lineup and re-air The Voice which was preempted in some areas on Monday for hurricane coverage. Even though it's a repeat, it will probably do better than the comedy lineup and that could help Rock Center a hair.
Prediction: Rock Center - 4.1 million, 1.2

FOX
8:00 The X Factor
FOX has a second night of live shows of The X Factor. I think we'll see similar numbers to its last Thursday airing a couple weeks ago.
Prediction: Factor - 8.8 million, 3.0
