The Thursday TV ratings for April 2nd are in; here are some of the highlights:
- First Daylight Savings, and now Passover/Easter — viewership numbers start to dip around the holiday weekend, so expect another round of paltry returns and big drops from last week (but note that it’s not as dire as it seems).
- The Big Bang Theory at 8 p.m. on CBS helped lead the Eye network to a victory with adults in the key 18-19 demographic, as well as with viewers overall thanks to a 3.2 rating and 13.35 million viewers (even though it was down 27 percent).
- On ABC at 8 p.m., Grey’s Anatomy scored a 1.8 and 6.6 million viewers, down 18 percent to a series low. Scandal at 9 p.m. also scored a season low 2.1 and 7.23 million viewers.
American Crime at 10 p.m. also dipped to a 1.1 and 4.69 million viewers, coming in second place in the timeslot to Elementary on CBS, which notched a 1.2 and 7.36 million viewers.
- NBC’s The Slap didn’t get a bump from its finale, but it also didn’t drop — the miniseries stayed steady with a 0.7 and 3.32 million viewers.
- Back at 9 p.m., NBC’s The Blacklist tied last week’s series low with a 1.6 rating and 7.54 million viewers, beating out Fox’s Backstrom, which dipped 11 percent to a 0.8 rating and 3.18 million viewers.
- At 8:30 p.m., CBS’s The Odd Couple, which has been fairly strong, dropped 24 percent to a 1.9 rating and 8.71 million viewers.
