On Thursday night, CBS finally had the big January bump that they usually get. At 8pm, The Big Bang Theory was up eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since the second week of the season. The Great Indoors followed suit and was up a strong 1.4 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. This ties the series premiere in the demo and is an outright series high in total viewers. After looking really weak for awhile, The Great Indoors has looked stronger and got an additional three episodes today to bring it to a full season of 22 episodes. Monday comedies Kevin Can Wait and Man with a Plan also got additional episodes. At 9pm, Mom was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a season high. Life in Pieces didn't quite get the bump the other comedies got as it was down two tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Pure Genius was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

NBC was back with its Thursday lineup after nearly two months off due to football and the results were pretty disappointing. At 8pm, Superstore was the most solid return as it was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The Good Place was down three tenths in viewers and the demo, tying a series low as it begins a crucial stretch here before it ends its season at the end of the month. At 9pm, Chicago Med was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo, tying a series low. The Blacklist was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for an outright series low. On ABC, The Great American Baking Show was up 1.1 million viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last airing, which was at 10pm. It was followed by a movie on the 1990s Menendez Brothers murder. Continuing in the OJ & JonBenet Ramsay parade, this also overperformed with a solid 1.7 demo that topped all fall episodes of Notorious and How to Get Away with Murder in this slot. I expect the true crime trend will continue. FOX aired two hours of Hell's Kitchen on its new night and it was up from the Rosewood/Pitch lineup.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Great Indoors (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Blacklist (NBC)
