On Thursday night, CBS had some interesting developments for bubble shows. First up though, the season finale of The Big Bang Theory was up seven tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. A double pumping of The Odd Couple followed and the results were not promising. The 8:30pm episode was down a million viewers and two tenths in the demo which would have been a series low if not for the 9pm episode that fell another 1.2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo from there. This is not going to help its case for next year because it was pretty evident what would happen to this show if it didn't have a lead-in from The Big Bang Theory. If it does get renewed, there's a good chance it will be the next The Millers. At 10pm, Elementary was down a tenth in viewers and the demo for its worst performance since November. While I don't think Elementary will get cancelled, this performance may play a role in how CBS decides to slot the show.

Over on ABC, Grey's Anatomy continued to fall back after its big spike two weeks ago. It was down a million viewers and half a demo point. This drop is not surprising, the bigger question is what will it do in the fall? At 9pm, Scandal was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last airing two weeks ago. American Crime, which scored a surprise renewal, was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. On NBC, The Blacklist rebounded a bit from last week's disaster. It was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. However, this would have been a new series low if not for last week. At 10pm, Dateline NBC was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. Finally on FOX, two hours of Bones was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Odd Couple (CBS)
