On Thursday night, FOX had a series premiere of another new unscripted cooking show. First up though, Hell's Kitchen was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo with last week's 8pm episode. At 9pm, the series premiere of My Kitchen Rules was mostly ignored with 2.5 million viewers and a 0.9 demo. This is at Pitch levels and seems like it'll have a hard time become the next Hell's Kitchen or Masterchef. On ABC, the season finale of The Great American Baking Show was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It was a series high in viewers and I imagine it'll be back next year again as holiday filler. An African American music special aired from 9-11pm and did alright as far as filler programming goes. On NBC, Superstore was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. The Good Place was up a tenth in viewers and the demo from last week's series low. Chicago Med was up a solid seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The Blacklist was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

Finally, CBS had a great week last week but they aired a repeat of The Big Bang Theory at 8pm this week and that sent the entire lineup plummeting. The Great Indoors looked so great last week but it tumbled 2.3 million viewers and half a demo point with a repeat lead-in. Mom also had a rough fall, dropping 1.1 million viewers and four tenths in the demo. It got slightly better with Life in Pieces, which was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 10pm, Pure Genius was even in viewers and actually up a tenth in the demo despite the entire comedy lineup dropping. I think CBS could have planned this out better as this week could have been a good chance to build on last week's nice showing before TGIT returns soon.
