“The Big Bang Theory” narrowly avoided a series low Thursday night. Although it still led the night, its 2.7 rating in adults 18-49 tied the show’s second-lowest mark ever and was the lowest since the end of Season 1.
The rest of CBS’ lineup was fairly steady, with “The Great Indoors” and “Life in Pieces” matching their early ratings from a week ago. “Mom” (1.5) and “Training Day” (0.7) fell a tenth of a point.
ABC led the night in the 18-49 demographic. “Grey’s Anatomy” was off a tenth at 2.0, but “Scandal” (1.7) improved a tenth on last week’s rating. “How to Get Away with Murder” held steady at 1.3.
“Supernatural” (0.7) also rose last week for The CW, while “Riverdale” was steady with last week’s preliminary 0.4 (it adjusted up to 0.5 in the finals). NBC’s lineup was all even with last week. “Masterchef Junior” (1.1) and “My Kitchen Rules” (0.7) each dipped two tenths on FOX.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
