After a great first week back, ABC's top dramas came back hard on Thursday night. First up, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland aired for the first time since December 12. It was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo but still at a very low 0.9. At 9pm, Grey's Anatomy was down 1.2 million viewers and half a demo point while Scandal was down eight tenths in viewers and a rough six tenths in the demo. I'm surprised they dropped this hard after just one week back. On NBC, Community was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Parks and Recreation was up half a million viewers ansd two tenths in the demo. At 9pm, Hollywood Game Night was down a tenth in viewers and the demo, while Parenthood closed out the night up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Things seem ever-so-slightly better on NBC Thursdays without The Michael J. Fox Show and Sean Saves the World.

On CBS, four of the five shows were up from last week. At 8pm, The Big Bang Theory was up four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. This show almost always does better in its second week back from a break. At 8:30pm, The Millers was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. It is separating itself from every other freshman comedy on the networks, regardless of its weak retention out of Big Bang. At 9pm, Two and a Half Men was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for its best performance since the season premiere. The move to 9pm has been a huge improvement for this show as it is a much more compatible lead-out to The Millers than The Crazy Ones. Despite the rises of the shows before it, The Crazy Ones fell four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to tie a series low. Things are grim for Crazy as it is doing much worse than Men did at 9:30pm while Men is doing much better than it did at 9pm. At 10pm, Elementary was down two tenths in viewers but up two tenths in the demo. On FOX, American Idol hit a new series low as it was down two tenths in viewers and the demo. At 9pm, Rake was dead even with last week. Starting next week, Idol moves to 9pm and Rake is benched to Fridays as Hell's Kitchen will come to 8pm.
