On Thursday night, FOX had a slightly revamped lineup. At 8pm was the new season of Hell's Kitchen. It immediately paid dividends for FOX. Though it was down from FOX's 8pm offering last week (Idol), it was way stronger than the 9pm show (Rake) so it contributed to a much better night for FOX. Plus, it held its own against The Big Bang Theory. At 9pm, American Idol was down nine tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Considering it was at an easier time and actually had a lead-in, it probably should have gone up. But at least it didn't hit another series low. On ABC, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was down a tenth in viewers and the demo, tying a series low. At 9pm, Grey's Anatomy was down eight tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo, also tying a series low. However, Scandal did not follow suit as it held up much better. It was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

On CBS, The Big Bang Theory was down eight tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo, tying a season low. It may have been negatively impacted by Daylight Savings though that hasn't been a huge issue this week. At 8:30pm, The Millers was down 1.1 million viewers and half a demo point. Once again, retention out of Big Bang was below 50%. However, it doesn't matter anymore since The Millers snagged a renewal anyway. At 9pm, Two and a Half Men was down a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. Its retention from The Millers is way better than The Crazy Ones' retention was. Speaking of The Crazy Ones, it was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The fact that it didn't get a renewal this week, when the other CBS shows did, is a bad idea. At 10pm, Elementary was up four tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. As usual, NBC was not very competitive. At 8pm, Community was dead even with last week. At 8:30pm, Parks and Recreation was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, Hollywood Game Night was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It's hard to believe this is a better lineup than it was in the fall. At 10pm, Parenthood was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.
