Fast National ratings for Thursday, October 10, 2013.
It was a very mixed Thursday, as several networks found things to be enthusiastic about and several shows sunk into the danger zone.
CBS was, as always, led by "The Big Bang Theory," which was Thursday's top show in must measures and led the network to overall wins for the night, though "The Millers," "The Crazy Ones" and "Two and a Half Men" all continued to fall, despite that powerful lead-in.
Some of the declines for several shows in the 9 p.m. hour are probably due to a well-above-average audience for FOX's "Glee," which paid tribute to the late Cory Monteith and drew its biggest audience since last September.
The night's lone premiere was ABC's "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," which came in below the fall Thursday 8 p.m. launches for "FlashForward," "Charlie's Angels" and "Last Resort" from recent years. And while it still led the 10 p.m. hour, ABC's "Scandal" was down from last week's premiere.
Meanwhile, NBC's former Must See Thursday was five shows averaging under 4 million viewers and between an 0.8 and 1.2 in the key demo, with rather dire numbers across the board.
Note that The CW's lineup was preempted in the New York market for football and will probably change, perhaps dramatically in the case of the 9 p.m. encore of "The Originals."
On to the numbers...
