Fast Affiliate Ratings

Total Viewers:
Fox: 9.02 million, CBS: 4.53, ABC: 3.64, NBC: 3.15, CW: 494,000

Adults 18-49: 
Fox: 2.2 rating/15 share, NBC: 0.5/ 4, ABC: 0.5/ 3, CBS: 0.4/ 3, CW: 0.1/ 1

It was another easy Thursday victory for Fox care of the NFL matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (28) and the Philadelphia Eagles (22). See network averages above (and keep in mind that these fast affiliate — time period based — results for any live event are always approximate).

On CBS, week two of sitcom “Ghosts” is showing minor signs of life in the Thursday 9 p.m. ET half-hour. But the sophomore season premiere of lead-out “B Positive” shows that not every Chuck Lorre comedy is a hit. And the overall 8-10 p.m. Eye net sitcom block remains sorely lacking among adults 18-49. Drama “Bull” at 10 p.m., meanwhile, needs to call it quits this season. Take a look:

CBS/Thursday
8:00 p.m. “Young Sheldon”
Viewers: 6.31 million (#2), A18-49: 0.6 rating/5 share (#2)

8:30 p.m. “United States of Al”
Viewers: 4.47 million (#2), A18-49: 0.5/ 3 (#2t)

9:00 p.m. “Ghosts”
Viewers: 5.10 million (#2), A18-49: 0.6/ 4 (#2t)

9:30 p.m. “B Positive” (season premiere)
Viewers: 3.84 million (#4), A18-49: 0.4/ 3 (#4)

10:00 p.m. “Bull”
Viewers: 3.73 million (#1), A18-49: 0.3/ 2 (#3t)

Also in season premiere news was The CW drama “Legacies”, which was left at the Thursday 9 p.m. time period gate with just 345,000 viewers (#5) and a 0.1/ 0 in the demo (#5). Lead-in “Coroner” (Viewers: #5, 643,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 1 at 8 p.m.) was also sorely lacking.

On ABC, “Station 19” (Viewers: #3, 4.15 million; A18-49: #2, 0.5/ 4 at 8 p.m.) faced an encore telecast of “Law & Order: SVU” on NBC. The 9-11 p.m. competing dramas on ABC and NBC fared as follows.

Thursday 9 p.m.
ABC – “Grey’s Anatomy”
Viewers: 3.93 million (#3), A18-49: 0.6/ 4 (#3)

NBC – “Law & Order: SVU”
Viewers: 3.82 million (#4), A18-49: 0.7/ 4 (#2)

Thursday 10 p.m.
ABC – Big Sky”
Viewers: 2.83 million (#4), A18-49: 0.3/ 2 (#3t)

NBC – “Law & Order: Organized Crime”
Viewers: 3.82 million (#4), A18-49: 0.5/ 4 (#2)

The moral of the story: “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Law & Order: SVU” are showing their age.
