Fast National ratings for Thursday, November 7, 2013.
As usual, "The Big Bang Theory" was Thursday's top show in all measures and, as usual, it lifted CBS to primetime wins in most measures, even though the network lost young viewers with each half-hour.
Thursday offered a slew of mixed results.
If you want positives, an out-of-schedule hour of "The Voice" did low ratings by the NBC hit's standards, but it also gave a huge boost to "Sean Saves The World," as well as a smaller boost to "The Michael J. Fox Show" and "Parenthood," as NBC's entire Thursday lineup made it over the four million viewer plateau. [NBC had the Thursday Night Football game in Washington, so there could be some slippage.]
"The Voice" also sent FOX's frantic 13-performance "The X Factor" to series lows for a regular episode, as "Glee" was forced to improve upon its lead-in the 9 p.m. hour.
And as bad as that "Voice" number was, it still beat ABC's "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," which dipped below a 1.0 in the key demo and cost ABC the night among young viewers.
On to the numbers...
