Thursday night had the second week of CBS's regular Thursday lineup and the results weren't very encouraging. The best news came at 8pm where The Big Bang Theory was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It may start to go up in the weeks to come as it often does in the late fall/early winter months. The rest of the lineup did not benefit. At 8:30pm, Mom was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's premiere. This is still a decent performance but retention is getting a little more troubling. At 9pm, Two and a Half Men was down 1.2 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. New comedy The McCarthys looks to be a dud as it was down 1.4 million viewers and two tenths in the demo from its premiere. It is at a weak 1.5 demo and CBS has Mike & Molly and The Odd Couple sitting on the bench. I'd be shocked to see this go past 13 episodes. Elementary continues to be a problem at 10pm where it was down half a million viewers and even in the demo, losing to Parenthood in the latter category. On FOX, Bones was dead even with last week while it keeps getting worse for Gracepoint, which was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

ABC's TGIT lineup was back in full force with Grey's Anatomy returning down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. It is still one of the top improvements in a timeslot on any network as it has solved ABC's Thursday 8pm problem. Scandal was up half a million viewers but down two tenths in the demo despite the better lead-in. At 10pm, How to Get Away with Murder was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's series low. Finally on NBC, The Biggest Loser was down a tenth in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Bad Judge was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while A to Z was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Parenthood rebounded more than the others as it was up a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Gracepoint (FOX)
