Over on NBC, the Million Second Quiz finale did 5.4 mil and a 1.4, up 10 and 27 percent from its penultimate outing. NBC News’ Valerie Harper profile led out of that with 4.4 mil/1.0, the Peacock’s largest audience in the time slot since July 4.
ABC’s Wipeout ended its latest run with 4.4 mil and a 1.2, up 13 percent and even with its previous finale. Leading out of that, you had the most watched Grey’s Anatomy repeat (5.1 mil/1.4) in three years, as the superstorm swept Seattle again, while Scandal‘s encore outing of Fitz’s mistress (4.1 mil/1.2) served up the drama’s second-best rerun numbers ever.
Speaking of encores, the 8 o’clock Big Bang Theory repeat drew Thursday’s biggest audience (8.8 mil), while the hitcom’s 9 pm rerun delivered the night’s best demo rating (2.2).
