Thursday night had no major musical event on NBC so many shows were up a little bit while NBC was of course back to its low numbers. On CBS, The Big Bang Theory started things off up 1.9 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. At 8:30pm, The Millers was up 1.7 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. Raw numbers remain pretty good for this show but the retention continues to hover near 50%. At 9pm, The Crazy Ones was up three tenths in viewers but down two tenths in the demo to disappointingly tie a series low. The worst performance came at 9:30pm where Two and a Half Men was even in viewers and down a rough four tenths in the demo for a series low. It has never dipped below a 2 demo in its eleven year history. Despite its weak showing this year, I think it'll be back because CBS won't want both this and How I Met Your Mother to end this season. At 10pm, Elementary was up eight tenths in viewers but down a tenth in the demo.

On NBC, the third night of The Sing-Off was its weakest yet but it still beat The X Factor in the hour. At 9pm, Sean Saves the World was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last airing three weeks ago while The Michael J. Fox Show was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. What a disappointment these two comedies have been. At 10pm, Parenthood was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. On FOX, The X Factor results show was even in viewers but down two tenths in the demo ahead of next week's finale. These numbers have been continuously bad since the baseball break and I just can't see FOX bringing this show back next fall. If they do, it certainly won't take up three hours on their schedule.

Over on ABC, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was up a tenth in viewers but down a tenth in the demo for a new series low. As of now, ABC is advertising it as returning in March but that must be to just finish the episode order. There's no way this show is getting more episodes. At 9pm, Grey's Anatomy rebounded nicely from last week's series low as it was up 1.4 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for its best number in over a month. At 10pm, Scandal was up nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since October 17. Both Grey's and Scandal are done with new episodes until February 27. Limited series The Assets will fill in for Scandal starting in January.
