Fast National ratings for Thursday, February 12, 2015.
With "The Big Bang Theory" in repeats, ABC swept Thursday's primetime hours among young viewers (tying with "Idol" at 8 p.m.), but even a "Big Bang" repeat still led CBS to a narrow overall win for the night.
Thursday's other big story was NBC's across-the-board struggles. "The Slap" got off to a weak start in the 8 p.m. hour, "The Blacklist" took a big drop at 9 p.m. and "Allegiance" is a dead-show-walking at 10 p.m.
The decline for "Blacklist" no doubt benefitted FOX's "Backstrom," which got a big bump from last week's series lows to numbers that are low, but not instantly dire.
