Shonda continued to rule Thursday nights with ABC's lineup separating itself from the pack now that football is gone from the broadcast networks. Grey's Anatomy started things off up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, Scandal popped back up three tenths in viewers and the demo for its best performance since October 2. That seems to bode well for next week's fall finale. At 10pm, How to Get Away with Murder was up a tenth in viewers and the demo. This is still a big hit, but it's not going to be bigger than Scandal like it may have appeared for a couple weeks. On NBC, The Biggest Loser was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Bad Judge followed down half a million viewers and even in the demo. It got pretty ugly for A to Z which fell three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a pitiful 0.6. This is probably in the "pull now" territory. NBC could double pump Bad Judge the rest of the way. At 10pm, Parenthood was down four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo to a new series low. The lead-in certainly isn't helping matters for Parenthood's final stretch.

Over on CBS, The Big Bang Theory started things off up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best Thursday rating this season. Mom took more advantage this week as it rose three tenths in viewers and the demo for a series high. Retention is still not great, but this was a more promising sign. At 9pm, Two and a Half Men was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It's getting worse for The McCarthys as it was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo despite every show before it rising. Then things got really dire where the wheels are coming off for Elementary. It fell six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a horrible 1.0. Forget what I said about Stalker, this is the biggest problem at 10pm for CBS. Both Parenthood and Elementary got a 1.0 demo in the hour, but Elementary had a lead-in that was eight tenths higher. Finally on FOX, Bones was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while Gracepoint was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Scandal (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Elementary (CBS)
