Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in, and the networks faced a sharp drop in viewership against the NFL Draft.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • NBC’s fantastic new drama series Hannibal sadly saw another drop in ratings, as last night’s episode hit a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and 2.4 million viewers.  That’s down four tenths from last week’s 1.4 rating.
  • Even though CBS stalwart The Big Bang Theory drew more total viewers than all of NBC’s programming combined (yes, really), the show hit a season low rating of 4.2 for a drop of a full ratings point from its last originals’ 5.2 rating.  Nevertheless, the comedy dominated the night with 14.38 million viewers.
  • Back over at NBC, though, a Jim Rash-penned episode of Community notched a series low 1.0 rating and 2.4 million viewers.  A sad fate for what was by far the best episode of an uneven season.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Thursday, April 25th, including Parks and Recreation, Person of Interest, Scandal, Elementary, The Vampire Diaries, and more.

NBC

  • community-basic-human-anatomyCommunity notched a 1.0 rating and 2.4 million viewers, tying its series low performance and dropping three tenths from last week’s 1.3 rating.
  • A new episode of Parks and Recreation hit a season low 1.3 rating and 2.54 million viewers, which is down four tenths from last week’s 1.7 rating for the Patton Oswalt-infused episode.
  • The drama series Hannibal—which had its fourth episode pulled completely due to sensitivity issues—scored a 1.0 rating and 2.4 million viewers.  That’s down four tenths from last week’s 1.4 rating, but hopefully things rebound next week when its not playing opposite the draft.

ABC

  • ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy earned a 2.7 rating and 8.12 million viewers, which is down just a tenth from its last original episode’s 2.8 rating.
  • The soap Scandal notched a series-high 2.8 rating and 7.76 million viewers, which is a rise of two tenths from its last original episode’s 2.6 rating.

CBS

  • the-big-bang-theory-the-closure-alternativeOver on CBS, The Big Bang Theory scored a season low 4.2 rating and 14.38 million viewers, which is down a full ratings point from its last original episode’s 5.2 rating.
  • Also way down was Two and a Half Men, which hit a series low 2.8 rating and 11.03 million viewers.  That’s a drop of over a full ratings point from its last original’s 3.9 rating.
  • The procedural Person of Interest also notched a series low with a 2.4 rating and 12.99 million viewers, down three tenths from its last original episode’s 2.7 rating.
  • Not to sound like a broken record, but Elementary hit a series low with a 2.0 rating and 9.94 million viewers.  That said, it only dropped a tenth from its last new episode’s 2.1 rating.

FOX

  • Glee earned a 1.8 rating and 5.24 million viewers, which is down three tenths from last week’s 2.1 rating.

The CW

  • At the CW, last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries (which operated as a backdoor pilot for the potential spinoff The Originals) hit a 0.9 rating and 2.15 million viewers, dropping a tenth from its last original’s 1.0 rating.
  • Beauty and the Beast was also down, garnering a 0.5 rating and 1.3 million viewers.
