It was a rosy Thursday night for CBS and, to a lesser extent, NBC. On CBS, The Big Bang Theory started off up 1.2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. The viewership total tied a series high while the demo was the best since the first week of the season. This show always soars in January but it's skewing older this year. At 8:30pm, The Millers was up a strong 2.1 million viewers and half a demo point for its best numbers since the series premiere. On a night of rising numbers, this show rose the most and gave a great showing when it really needed to even though retention continued to be weak. At 9pm, The Crazy Ones was up 1.3 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for its best numbers since October 17. Two and a Half Men was up nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best numbers since October 3. The good news continued at 10pm where Elementary was up a million viewers and two tenths in the demo, also posting its best numbers since October 3. Chances are this was the highest we'll see most of these shows for the rest of the season but it was still a stellar week for CBS Thursday with everything hitting at least a 2.0 demo.

Everything was up or even for NBC as well though the highest demo was a 1.5 so it wasn't quite like CBS. At 8pm, Community was up a tenth in viewers and the demo from its season premiere. Usually it drops in week two so this was a decent showing. It helped Parks and Recreation to rise six tenths in viewers and half a demo point for its 100th episode. There may be a little life left in Parks after all as it may be helped by returning to its old 8:30pm slot. At 9pm, Sean Saves the World was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo while The Michael J. Fox Show was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. Parenthood wasn't up like the sitcoms as it was down three tenths in viewers but even in the demo. On ABC, week two of The Taste was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo as it held on well to its season premiere numbers. While not spectacular, it's acceptable enough as a short-term filler for ABC. What will not be acceptable is The Assets which fell nine tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo to a terrible 0.6. ABC cancelled the show today after two airings.
