On Thursday night, two new shows fell fractional while almost everything was down. FOX had the season premiere of Masterchef Junior and it delivered a solid 1.3 demo, beating NBC's entire lineup and the last couple episodes of Hell's Kitchen. This show does well wherever FOX puts it. It also helped My Kitchen Rules, which was back to its premiere rating, up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. On NBC, Superstore was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. After an acceptable premiere last week, Powerless fell apart in week two, dropping six tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. Considering the low demo for The Good Place was a 1.0, this was a very disappointing second week and probably knocks it out of renewal conversation barring a surprising recovery. At 9pm, Chicago Med was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a new series low while The Blacklist was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

On CBS, The Big Bang Theory was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo for a season low. At 8:30pm. The Great Indoors was new for the first time in three weeks and was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 9pm, Mom was down 1.1 million viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week, when it followed the strong preview of Superior Donuts. At 9:30pm, Life in Pieces was down half a million viewers and even in the demo. At 10pm, week two of Training Day was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. This show is already at the point where it's just riding out the string. On ABC, Grey's Anatomy was even in viewers and down two tenths in the demo, Scandal was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while How to Get Away with Murder was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. All three TGIT dramas were renewed on Friday for the 2017-18 season. Finally on the CW, Supernatural was even while Riverdale was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo for an encouraging third week. Considering No Tomorrow only hit a 0.5 once and Frequency never did, the fact that Riverdale has twice now probably helps its renewal chances greatly.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Masterchef Junior (FOX)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Powerless (NBC)
