It was a pretty ugly night all the way around on Thursday. ABC had its new TGIT lineup and The Catch was a big step down from How to Get Away with Murder. First up though, Grey's Anatomy was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo to tie a series low it has hit twice before. At 9pm, Scandal hit an outright series low, dropping eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. This show seemed to be on the upswing before a two week break that seemed to dull some momentum. Then The Catch returned and it is certainly a weak link with a 0.8 demo. It got a surprise renewal last year despite low numbers and now it tied its series low with this premiere. I'm sure this will air through the rest of the season but I can't imagine ABC giving it another reprieve. Over on FOX, Masterchef Junior was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The series premiere of the new Kicking and Screaming was no different from the just ended My Kitchen Rules so it was a pretty even swap.

On CBS, The Big Bang Theory was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It was a bad night for The Great Indoors, which was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, retaining only 50% of the Big Bang audience. At 9pm, Mom was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while Life in Pieces was the only show on any network to rise from its last airing as it was up a tenth in viewers and the demo. At 10pm, Training Day was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. On NBC, Superstore was a repeat and the rest of the lineup had a rough outing. Powerless was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Without The Voice as a lead-in, Chicago Med plummeted 2.5 million viewers and six tenths in the demo to tie a series low. This show can succeed in a good situation but it hasn't had that on Thursdays. At 10pm, The Blacklist: Redemption was also hit hard from a much lower lead-in. It was down 1.1 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. Not surprisingly, this is looking like a dead show. Finally on the CW, Supernatural hit a new series low, dropping a tenth in viewers and the demo. Newly renewed Riverdale held up well though as it dropped a tenth in viewers but was even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Life in Pieces (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Catch (ABC)
