Check below this post for reviews of Ironside and Super Fun Night!
Thursday brings a really busy night with three series premieres and the much anticipated return of Scandal. ABC has a Scandal special at 8pm before a new Grey's Anatomy at 9pm and then the season premiere of last season's hottest drama. I think it'll return big, quite possibly to a series high. While things will be good there, more interesting to watch in the ratings are CBS and NBC. For CBS, they have their Thursday lineup in tact. Of course Big Bang will be big at 8pm and that should help The Millers get sampled in its series premiere. The big question is how will The Crazy Ones do at 9pm without a Big Bang lead-in. Obviously a big drop is expected but staying above a 3.0 demo would be promising. NBC has two new series premieres in Welcome to the Family and Sean Saves the World starring Sean Hayes. The problem is they are following the exceptionally weak Parks and Recreation. I think NBC's lineup will build as the comedies go on leading into The Michael J. Fox Show, but I don't think any of them will be particularly impressive. Finally, FOX might see the best week-to-week numbers with veteran shows airing.
