“Scandal” opened its final season Thursday to lower ratings than last season’s debut. The show’s 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 was down from a 2.0 for its Season 6 premiere in January but even with last season’s average.

ABC’s other shows were off a bit from premiere week. “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.0) fell 0.3 from last week but tied “Will & Grace” as the night’s top scripted show. “How to Get Away with Murder” (0.9) drew a series-low 0.9.

NBC’s shows mostly dipped vs. a week ago as well, with “Will & Grace” taking the biggest hit. Its 2.0 was down a full point from last week’s premiere. “Superstore” (1.2, -0.1), “The Good Place” (1.2, -0.2), “Great News” (1.0, -0.3) and “Chicago Fire” (1.2, -0.3) had smaller declines.

At FOX, “Gotham” matched last week’s 0.9, but “The Orville” fell two tenths of a point to 0.9.

CBS’ “Thursday Night Football” improved on last week’s game in metered markets, scoring an 11.1 household rating vs. 9.9 a week ago. Its fast national viewer count (10.78 million) and 18-49 rating (3.2) are on par with last week.

Definitions:
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.
