CBS’ regular Thursday lineup kicks off this week with “The Big Bang Theory” and “Life in Pieces” moving over from Mondays and “Mom” and “Elementary” starting their seasons. (“2 Broke Girls” will complete the schedule next week.)

Which means that it’s time for a couple more ratings prediction polls. Can “Mom” keep pace against “Scandal” and “The Blacklist”? Will “Elementary” steal back some audience from “How to Get Away With Murder”?

Before you vote in the polls below, consider the following:

Last season “Mom” averaged a 2.3 same-day rating. It was slightly below that in the weeks where it led off the 9 p.m. hour.

If “Life in Pieces” maintains its Monday performance, it will be delivering about a 2.0 lead-in to “Mom.”

“Elementary” had a 1.3 same-day rating last season. It did slightly better after “HTGAWM” and NBC’s “Parenthood” ended.

Vote below on how each show will do to start this season.
