On Thursday night, an AFC West showdown between the Raiders and Chiefs was down over a demo point from the last two weeks of games. It was still a solid number though. CBS had a very interesting night as it appeared that football has been a problem for this lineup and the lower rated game led to a better week. Despite a repeat lead-in this week, The Great Indoors was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. This is by far the most impressive performance for this show so far as it was looking weaker and weaker lately. This is sort of like Life in Pieces last year, where it may improve its chances by good showings on repeat Big Bang weeks. The rest of the lineup was up too. Mom was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo and Life in Pieces was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Pure Genius was up eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since the series premiere.

On ABC, holiday specials were pretty low at 8pm. At 9pm, The Great American Baking Show was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's two hour season premiere. At 10pm, the season (and most definitely series) finale of Notorious tumbled three tenths lower than any result it has gotten in its poor fall run. On FOX, the second annual Taraji P. Henson holiday special didn't do much but was an improvement on Rosewood. At 9pm, the season finale of Pitch was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. While a renewal is still unlikely, this show has a better chance than Notorious of seeing a second season thanks to the critical acclaim. I still don't think it will get a second season though, at least not on FOX. Finally on the CW, DC's Legends of Tomorrow was down a big 1.4 million viewers and half a demo point from last week's huge crossover spike. At 9pm, Supernatural was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Great Indoors (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Notorious (ABC)
