CBS has been having a solid week and it continued Thursday night. At 8pm, The Big Bang Theory was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. Yes it tied a series low, but let's consider that no show this week has broken a 2.0 demo and Big Bang got a 2.5. So it remains well ahead of most everything. Instead of The Great Indoors, a Big Bang repeat aired at 8:30. That boosted Mom at 9pm, which was up 1.1 million viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since February 16. At 9:30pm, Life with Pieces was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while The Amazing Race ended the night up two tenths in viewers and the demo. On ABC, Grey's Anatomy was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo, Scandal was even in viewers but down a tenth in the demo, and The Catch was even.

On NBC, the season finale of Superstore was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. This show had a better situation at the beginning of the season and did better but it had a rough end to its season. At 9pm, Chicago Med was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. I really think this show has been the most under the radar of any show this season. It has really done well in trying circumstances. At 10pm, The Blacklist was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. On FOX, only Masterchef Junior was new, and it was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo.  Finally on the CW, Supernatural and Riverdale were both up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Mom (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Superstore (NBC)
