Thursday night has a series premiere with FOX's American Grit, a military-based reality series. It seems like it might be targeting the same type of audience as Strong, which airs an hour earlier on NBC. Earlier in the night for FOX is the return of Bones to the lineup after several months off. I don't expect too much from this pair. NBC is premiering its latest Thursday night incarnation the time period premieres of Strong and Game of Silence sandwiching The Blacklist. Elsewhere, ABC has two hours of Grey's Anatomy and no Scandal while CBS is new except for The Big Bang Theory, and that could drag the lineup further down. Interestingly, all three 10pm dramas are in their first couple episodes.
8:00 Grey's Anatomy #263/264 "There's a Fine, Fine Line/It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)"
10:00 The Catch #4 "The Princess and the I.P."
Prediction: Grey's - 7.1 million, 2.1/Catch - 5.0 million, 1.1
8:00 The Big Bang Theory (REPEAT)
8:30 The Odd Couple #14 "Unger the Influence"
9:00 Mom #61 "Caperberries and a Glass Eye"

9:00 The Blacklist #62 "Mr. Solomon: Conclusion"
