Thursday night was the start of May Sweeps and it was also the NFL Draft. That usually means bad news for The Big Bang Theory on CBS, but that was not the case this year as Big Bang was up a million viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last airing. I thought a series low was a strong possibility so this was a good night for Big Bang. At 8:30pm, The Great Indoors was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, Mom built on its lead-in as it was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Life in Pieces was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. At 10pm, The Amazing Race had a rough night as it was even in viewers but dropped a tenth in the demo to a weak 0.7. On ABC, Grey's Anatomy was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while Scandal was up a tenth in viewers and the demo. The Catch continued to be ignored and was even with last week. ABC has so many low-rated dramas. I'm sure some of them will get renewed but none of their dramas outside of Grey's, Scandal, and Designated Survivor deserve it.

NBC has cancelled Powerless and shifted the new episode of Superstore to 8:30, behind a repeat. It didn't pay off for them as it was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo to tie a series low. I assume the 8:30 decision was made to avoid The Big Bang Theory and help Chicago Med, but at this point in the season, I probably would have left the new episode at 8pm and aired a repeat at 8:30. At 9pm, Chicago Med was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while The Blacklist was even with last week's 10pm episode. FOX was weirdly hit the hardest, perhaps because of the Draft. At 8pm, Masterchef Junior was down nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a new series low. At 9pm, the season finale of Kicking & Screaming was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. I really doubt this show will get a second season. Finally on the CW, Supernatural was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Riverdale was even.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Masterchef Junior (FOX)
