On Thursday night, NBC saw its entire lineup rise or stay steady from last week. At 8pm, the comedies showed a little bit of promise with Superstore rising eight tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo and The Good Place rising half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. These comedies are certainly giving NBC a glimmer of hope that they can get a pulse back in the comedy department to go with their strong drama/unscripted lineup. At 9pm, Chicago Med was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Commentary has been pretty negative on this show's performance on Thursdays so far but I think it's holding up OK in a big move for its second season. At 10pm, The Blacklist was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. On CBS, an unappealing Cardinals-49ers matchup was well below the last CBS Thursday game two weeks ago.

On ABC, Grey's Anatomy remained the king of Thursdays but was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. After holding its low premiere demo in week two, Notorious fell three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a weak 0.9 demo. Are they really going to let this linger in this important slot all the way until Scandal comes back? At 10pm, How to Get Away with Murder was up a tenth in viewers but down a tenth in the demo for a series low. Finally on FOX, Rosewood was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. After premiering with a dreadful 0.9 demo, it has risen a tenth each week the last two weeks and now it's fairly close to most FOX shows outside of Wednesday. At 9pm, Pitch was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo, building on its lead-in for a third straight week.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Good Place (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Notorious (ABC)
