On Thursday night, FOX aired its musical, the reboot of The Rocky Horror Show and the results were OK. It was a big improvement on FOX's usual Thursday lineup but not anywhere close to what Grease: Live got on a Sunday in January. This special got a ton of promotion but it could never seem to capture a lot of buzz. It did skew pretty young though. On ABC, Grey's Anatomy was rock solid as usual, up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, Notorious was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. I fear as though Notorious has once again done enough for ABC not to make a move even though they should because of the black hole its being in the middle of an important lineup for them. At 10pm, How to Get Away with Murder was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's series low.

CBS had their final Thursday Night Football night and it was down slightly from last week. Next week it is on the NFL Network only before NBC takes over the package while the CBS regular lineup premieres next week. On NBC, the comedies seemingly took a hit against Rocky Horror. Superstore was down two tenths in viewers and the demo. This is its lowest showing besides a burnoff in late December last year and now it has to face The Big Bang Theory next week. The Good Place was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo but again even with its lead-in in the demo. At 9pm, Chicago Med continued the series low parade and was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. At 10pm, The Blacklist managed to not drop in the demo as it was down six tenths in viewers but even in the demo. Finally on the CW, DC's Legends of Tomorrow was even in viewers and actually up a tenth in the demo from last week's season premiere while Supernatural was down a rough six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, tying a series low in the latter category.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: DC's Legends of Tomorrow (CW)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Superstore (NBC)
