On Thursday night, TGIT returned to ABC but with worrying results. The best performance came from Grey's Anatomy, which was down just two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its fall finale. It was also easily tops of the night for ABC. That was not what ABC had in mind when this moved to 8pm. The anchor of the night, Scandal, was down a troubling 1.1 million viewers and three tenths in the demo from its fall finale for season lows. It was also down a horrendous 1.5 demo points from last year's midseason premiere. At 10pm, How to Get Away with Murder was down an even worse 1.4 million viewers and half a demo point. This show spiked for its finale but these results tie a series low in the demo and are an outright series low in total viewers. ABC basically punted with their lineup, and not just on Thursdays, for the last two months and it seems they are paying a price. The TGIT shows usually have big premieres and finales so this is not a good sign.

On CBS, The Big Bang Theory was up a million viewers but even in the demo with last week. That could be due to the younger skewing Grey's Anatomy providing competition this week. At 8:30pm, Life in Pieces was up three tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. Mom was up a tenth in viewers and the demo at 9pm while a repeat of The Big Bang Theory filled the Angel From Hell slot for a week before 2 Broke Girls returns to the night. At 10pm, Elementary was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. On NBC, You, Me, and the Apocalypse continued to inch downward as it fell half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. It seems to be bring The Blacklist down as that show was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. At 10pm, Shades of Blue was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, American Idol was up a tenth in viewers and down a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: How to Get Away with Murder (ABC)
