May Sweeps Spoilers

Ratings: DC's Legends Rises, The 100 Hits 6-Week Audience High

CBS’ The Big Bang Theory this Thursday drew 14.1 million total viewers and a 3.4 rating (per finals), rising two tenths in the demo and dominating the first night of May Sweeps in both measures.

Leading out of that, The Odd Couple (8.2 mil/1.7) was flat, while Mom (8.3 mil/1.7), 2 Broke Girls (6.6 mil/1.6) and Rush Hour (4.4 mil/0.9) each dipped a tenth.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

ABC | Grey’s Anatomy (7.9 mil/2.0) was steady and led all Thursday dramas. Scandal (6.3 mil/1.6) ticked up from last week’s series lows, while The Catch (4.6 mil/1.0) also added a tenth and (faint praise alert!) won its time slot.

NBC | Strong (2.7 mil/0.7), The Blacklist (6.7 mil/1.2) and Game of Silence (3.1 mil/0.6) each dipped a tenth.

THE CW | One of Legends of Tomorrow‘s best episodes to date (1.86 mil/0.7) rose a tenth, while The 100 (1.27 mil/0.4) was steady in the demo while delivering its largest audience since March 3.

FOX | Bones (4.4 mil/0.8) dipped to an all-time demo low. Grit (2.1 mil/0.7) was flat.

  2. Kevin K says:

    Hope Rush Hour gets cancelled soon.

  3. Lily says:

    I still hope Bones adjust up back to 0.9 like it did last week. Last night’s episode was one of the best hours of the entire series IMO.

  4. heather says:

    Bones went up to 0.9 in the second half hour, fingers crossed it will UP tick in finals

  5. Shaun says:

    The 100 and Greys doing great.A nearly 2 demo is really good these days.

  6. Michelle says:

    Woo! At The100. Despite everything thats been going on, the last 4 episodes have been fantastic. It feels much more cohesive now that the gang is back together. Good stuff happening. Great acting.

  7. Boiler says:

    Interesting everyone picking on comedies this year but CBS’ second hour beat Scandal and Blacklist and guessing, in total first hour beat Grey’s. Great for them and CBS sticking with them!! Too bad a couple of Fox’s comedies couldn’t move to a real network.

  8. Mike says:

    Bad ratings of Rush Hour and Criminal Minds Beyond Borders helps Limitless getting a second season. Also next year The 100 should go back to Wednesday

    I haven’t seen Legends in a few weeks, but I think I’ll catch last night’s episode on hulu.

  10. Courtney Smith says:

    Happy to see The Catch getting some praise. I know it’s not the biggest hit, but I like it a lot.

  11. Dennis says:

    I think The Catch will be renewed. Matt, what do you think?

  12. Good for BBT,2 Broke Girls though I wish 2 BGs was higher

  13. Bwhit says:

    I couldn’t believe the scale of the fight scene with Ray on Legends, good stuff! The whole episode was fantastic.

  14. kmw says:

    Too bad for Bones although it could have been worse. Last night was a great episode.

  15. HAP says:

    Strong doesn’t look very…

  16. EM says:

    UM…………Have you changed the header three times already about the ratings? First it was Big Bang and Greys are big winners, then Big Bang and now this with Legends and the 100? Why not wait until final numbers are in to report?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      The headline very seldom changes when finals come in. (And this one didn’t even need to change, I just decided the CW story was ultimately more interesting.) So, I’m good, but thanks for checking!
