Ratings: Big Bang, Grey's and Scandal Rise, Sing-Off Slips Further But Tops X Factor Again
As a flurry of fall finales faced off against one another, ABC and CBS enjoyed the most significant gains. While Once Upon a Time in Wonderland opened ABC’s night with 3.5 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating, adding a few eyeballs but flat in the demo, Grey’s Anatomy (8.5 mil/2.7) surged 20 and 17 percent (improving on last week’s series low demo), while Scandal (9.3 mil/3.2) was up 12 percent and two tenths, hitting two-month highs.
Over on CBS — where the numbers are subject to change due to some Chargers/Broncos preemptions — The Big Bang Theory (18.6 mil/5.3) is looking at gains of 19 and 10 percent and The Millers (12 mil/2.9) is up 30 and 21 percent. The Crazy Ones (9 mil/2.1) gained some viewers but was flat in the demo, while Two and a Half Men (9.4 mil/2.1) slipped two tenths. Elementary (9.5 mil/1.8) rose 14 percent in audience while steady in the demo.
NBC’s The Sing-Off drew 4.5 mil and a 1.4, down more than 20 percent from Wednesday, yet edged out The X Factor (4.9 mil/1.2, down two tenths) in the demo for a second straight night. Sean Saves the World (3.4 mil/1.0) ticked up a tenth, while Michael J Fox Show (3 mil/0.9) and Parenthood (3.9 mil/1.2) were flat.
