It was another pretty rocky Thursday night with the lone bright spot once again being Grey's Anatomy (especially with no football on CBS). Grey's was down just four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo and was even year-to-year. It continues to be such a beast. After a horrible first week, Notorious managed to stay even in the demo while dropping nine tenths in viewers. This isn't going to change its long term prospects, which are incredibly bad, but it probably buys it a little more time airing at 9pm and not getting sent to 10pm or yanked entirely. At 10pm, How to Get Away with Murder was down eight tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low. On FOX, Rosewood was down a tenth in viewers but actually up a tenth in the demo from its horrible premiere number last week. At 9pm, week two of Pitch was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. It still built on its lead-in so that helps its case but it needs to show some life in the weeks to come.

It was a weak night for NBC's new lineup. At 8pm, Superstore was down 1.1 million viewers and two tenths in the demo, tying a repeat of The Big Bang Theory in the slot in the demo. Probably the best news for NBC came from The Good Place, which was down just eight tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. So far, it seems like a very good fit with Superstore, building on its lead-in in total viewers and equaling it in the demo. At 9pm, Chicago Med was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low. Time to get these Chicago crossovers happening quickly before Med falls apart on Thursday! At 10pm, The Blacklist had a rough week, dropping four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a new series low. Last week was a mildly encouraging performance from The Blacklist in its new slot but this was far more troubling. And they're planning to do a spinoff this year?

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Grey's Anatomy (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Blacklist (NBC)
