Thursday night had the NFL Draft competing on ESPN. While it was still strong, it wasn't nearly as big as last year and as a result, CBS didn't take a nosedive like it has other year. At 8pm, The Big Bang Theory was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It still tied a season low but it has taken some big drops in the past on this night so this wasn't bad. The rest of the night held up even better for CBS. The Odd Couple was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, the season finale of Mom was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. I'll be shocked if this doesn't permanently take the 9pm anchor slot next year. At 10pm, Elementary was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

The show that really bombed out on Draft night was The Blacklist. It was down nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo to a series low. It held on for awhile but now the Thursday move is looking pretty disastrous. At 10pm, Dateline NBC was down seven tenths in viewers and even in the demo. On ABC, the two hour follow-up episode to the shocking and buzzing departure of Patrick Dempsey on Grey's Anatomy was down nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's one hour episode. While this was another strong performance, it'll be interesting to see what happens in the long run as the show is experiencing a bit of a backlash from fans over what happened last week. At 10pm, American Crime was down half a million viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, Bones was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo while the season (and most likely series) finale of Backstrom was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Mom (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Blacklist (NBC)
