FOX's "Gang Related" finale was also up from last week, though last week's numbers were depressed by NFL preemptions and "Gang Related" was closer to flat with recent regular airings.
And over on ABC, "The Quest" dropped a little in the key demo, "NY Med" was flat and "Rookie Blue" was up a hair. Since ABC had the NFL preseason preemption in Chicago, adjust expectations accordingly. [NBC had the NFL preemption in Jacksonville, but... come on. That's not causing a big impact. Sorry, Jaguars fans.]
On to the numbers...
Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.4 rating for Thursday night, tops in the key demographic. NBC was a close second with a 1.3 key demo rating, topping ABC's 0.9 key demo rating. FOX's 0.6 key demo rating and the 0.2 key demo rating for The CW followed.
Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 5.48 million viewers and a 3.5 rating/6 share for Thursday primetime.
