Fast National ratings for Thursday, February 19, 2015.
A decent premiere for "The Odd Couple" and a solid series finale bump for "Two and a Half Men" helped carry CBS to a Thursday rout overall and to a tie with "Scandal"-driven ABC among young viewers.
With "Odd Couple" outdrawing last week's "Mom" in the 8:30 slot, "American Idol" took a drop for FOX, which in turn led to a drop for "Backstrom," which gave up last week's small gains.
Also looking ugly was the second week of "The Slap," which dipped below The Mulaney Line for NBC. Also staying below a 1.0 in the key demo was the third week of the struggling "Allegiance." Wedging between those two drama duds, "The Blacklist" hit a series low in viewers, but remained flat in the key demo.
On to the numbers...
