On Thursday night, FOX had a new lineup with American Idol now over. Bones returned after being off since December 10 and it only managed to tie that day's ratings. It is so far past its prime so an announced final season for next year was a smart idea. It was still better than American Grit, which was ignored for its series premiere with 2.4 million viewers and a 0.8 demo. This looks to be a show that will be quickly forgotten but will probably air out the string. On CBS, a repeat of The Big Bang Theory led off the night. Despite a much lower lead-in, The Odd Couple was down just half a million viewers and even in the demo. After a very disappointing start to its season last week, this was a much more promising result. At 9pm, Mom was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo while 2 Broke Girls was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Rush Hour closed out the night down half a million viewers and even in the demo.

NBC debuted its third new Thursday lineup this season and the results were pretty awful. Once again, it was The Blacklist as a bright spot, rising three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. This show continues to impress when it has had no help in over a year since it moved to Thursday. At 8pm, the time period of Strong dropped two tenths in the demo from its weak Wednesday debut. And it was even worse for Game of Silence, which didn't carry anything over from its Voice preview, plunging six tenths in the demo from Tuesday's premiere. Both bookends to The Blacklist had pitiful 0.8 demos and will surely be one and done options here. So far, only Shades of Blue has shown any hope of being a Blacklist companion. Finally on ABC, a two hour Grey's Anatomy was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It provided a stronger lead-in for The Catch but the new TGIT show was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. It did manage to win the 10pm hour, albeit with a very weak 1.0 demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Blacklist (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: American Grit (FOX)
