The Vampire Diaries took a big bite out of the Thursday ratings, while The Voice lifted Sean Saves the World. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and The X Factor, meanwhile, were among last night’s big losers.
Let’s go network-by-network:
The CW | Despite facing increased competition in the 8 pm hour from NBC’s The Voice, Vampire Diaries soared 44 percent in the 18-49 demo compared to last week (1.3 vs. 0.9, per finals) — besting The X Factor. Rookie period soap Reign didn’t benefit from the bigger-lead in, however, matching last week’s 0.6.
Fox | The X Factor plummeted 40 percent from its last regular Thursday airing, notching a 1.2 in the demo aka an all-time low for a competition episode, while Glee drew a 1.5 — tying its series low but roughly even with its last non-tribute episode.

NBC | A special Thursday Voice results show (2.5) drove Sean Saves the World to a 1.4, jumping 27 percent week-over-week, but The Michael J. Fox Show (1.0) dipped a tenth. Parenthood capped the night with a 1.3, up a tenth.
CBS | The Big Bang Theory remained the night’s biggest draw, although its 4.9 was down three tenths from its last original episode two weeks ago. The Millers rebounded from last week’s low, jumping five tenths to a 2.6. The Crazy Ones was also up (2.1 vs. 1.9), while Two and a Half Men sank three-tenths to a 2.0 (a possible series low). Lastly, Elementary matched last week’s 1.8.
