On Thursday night, CBS had basketball which was well below its normal numbers, but up from last year's tournament. It doesn't do the numbers it used to since there are games on several networks. NBC had a pretty steady night. After a strong Dateline special, The Blacklist was up 1.1 million viewers and a tenth in the demo while The Slap was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. Over on ABC, Grey's Anatomy started things off up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Scandal has been on a troubling trend lately. It fell four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. It has come down nearly a full demo point in three episodes and posted its worst numbers since December 13, 2012. It seems to be really suffering without How to Get Away with Murder, which is odd since it seemed to be the driving force of the TGIT night. American Crime continued to slip. It was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a weak 1.2. Finally on FOX, American Idol was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Blacklist (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: American Crime (ABC)
