On Thursday night, The Big Bang Theory celebrated its 200th episode by posting its sixth straight 3.8 demo. The total viewer count was up seven tenths. It didn't pop for the big episode, but holding that steady at that high a number is no small feat. Afterwards on CBS, Life in Pieces was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, Mom was down eight tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 9:30pm, 2 Broke Girls was up two tenths in viewers and the demo for a nice rebound after its return to Thursday last week. At 10pm, Elementary was down two tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. On FOX, American Idol was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. It is holding up much better for its final season than it did last year.

It was another troubling night for TGIT on ABC. Grey's Anatomy was down eight tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a season low. At 9pm, Scandal was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for series lows in both categories. Before these past two weeks, Scandal's worst numbers were back in November 2012 right before it caught fire. At 10pm, How to Get Away with Murder was even with last week. Finally on NBC, both You, Me, and the Apocalypse were dead even with last week while Shades of Blue was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for new series lows. I don't know why NBC hasn't pulled or moved You, Me, and the Apocalypse yet. Dateline NBC would easily work here temporarily.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: American Idol (FOX)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: You, Me, and the Apocalypse (NBC)
