Spotted Ratings, Thursday 9/27/18


FINALS UPDATE: Grey's Anatomy (1.9), The Big Bang Theory (2.2) and Thursday Night Football (4.8, +1.5) adjusted up.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Not all revivals can take over the TV ratings world, and CBS proved that on Premiere Thursday with an underwhelming start for Murphy Brown (1.1) at 9:30, dropping by two tenths from its Mom lead-in (1.3). It basically looked like a high-end Life in Pieces performance from the last two years in this slot, which is not much of a compliment on opening night.
    • CBS had additional problems on the opening Thursday as The Big Bang Theory (2.1) seems to have sprung a leak in its final season, dropping at least three tenths from its already mediocre premiere on Monday, and S.W.A.T. (0.7) had a poor, series low showing with its first look at the Murphy Brown lead-in. The consolation for CBS is that Young Sheldon (1.6) held up a bit better than TBBT in its return to Thursday, and Mom (1.3) looked fine in its return at 9/8c.
  • NBC and ABC both combined a one-hour premiere and a two-hour premiere of veteran returnees. ABC's TGIT duo of Grey's Anatomy (1.8) and How to Get Away with Murder (0.8) along with NBC's skew-mismatched The Good Place (1.0) and Law and Order: SVU (1.1) were all down 20-30% from last season's openers. It's a familiar rate of decline for Murder, but rather steep by the standards Grey's and SVU have set in recent years.
  • The Premiere Thursday winner was the NFL, as Fox had a marquee matchup for its first edition of Thursday Night Football and looks like it could be up year-to-year vs. the TNF broadcast opener on CBS last season. It may have also been a well above average night on cable news.
