Without a major awards show or sporting event, the week of Feb. 8-14 was a relatively quiet one for the broadcast networks.

“The Big Bang Theory” was the week’s top show in adults 18-49 with a 3.8 rating and was the only show that got over a 3.0 in the demo. It was also second in viewers (16.25 million), behind “NCIS” (16.94 million). All three of ABC’s TGIT shows — “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.4), “Scandal” (2.1) and “How to Get Away with Murder” (1.8) — reclaimed spots in the Top 25.
