On Thursday night, NBC premiered The Blacklist: Redemption to poor results. But first up, Superstore was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo and Powerless was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The Blacklist returned to its 9pm slot for one week to be a lead-in to the spinoff but it couldn't do any better than its been doing at 10pm lately with a weak 0.9 demo. Then The Blacklist: Redemption premiered to a weak 0.8 demo. This might have been a good idea a couple years ago but people are pretty much over The Blacklist now so it's no surprise that the spinoff was ignored. On CBS, The Big Bang Theory was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while the next three sitcoms each slipped a tenth in the demo. In total viewers, The Great Indoors was down seven tenths while Mom and Life in Pieces were down three tenths. At 10pm, Training Day was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Now that Doubt has been pulled, Training Day is probably safe to air out its full run.

On ABC, Grey's Anatomy was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. The two hour season finale of How to Get Away with Murder followed and was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. This show has declined of course but it quietly had a very steady year, never going lower than a 1.1 demo or higher than a 1.5 demo. It will most likely return in the same Thursday 10pm slot in Fall 2017. On FOX, Masterchef Junior was up a tenth in viewers and the demo while My Kitchen Rules was even. Finally on the CW, Supernatural was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Riverdale sunk to its first 0.3 demo, dropping a tenth in viewers and the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: How to Get Away with Murder (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Blacklist: Redemption (NBC)
