*: Adjusted numbers; no half-hours available
(R): Rerun
(LY): The numbers are from last year's finale
Please note that last year's numbers are taken from the whole hour statistics, not the half-hours.

Things stabilized a bit after last week's terrible night. The worst was of course on ABC, and even though it didn't go up, it didn't go terribly down either. Well, that is except for Grey's Anatomy, down from one tenth, bringing its first half-hour to a 2.0. Will it cross that line after so many years? We'll see! Scandal was down, but only by one tenth this week, and its first half was stable. How to Get Away with Murder managed to go up a tenth in its first half, but its overall was stable with a 1.5.

One network must have been awfully deceived yesterday night, and it was NBC. No it wasn't for You, Me and the Apocalypse, still stable at its incredibly low 0.6, nor was it for the declining The Blacklist, also stable this week at a 1.3. No, it was for Shades of Blue, that just got its series low with a 1.0. That's dangerously close to being fractionnal at only 8 episodes! In my book, it's considered a flop. In NBC's book, it must be the show they renewed way too soon.

CBS was still very successfull, as it is every Thursday. The Big Bang Theory was down a tenth, but could always get a bump in final numbers (like it usually does). On the other hand Life in Pieces was up by a tenth to a 2.2, Mom was stable with its 1.8 and 2 Broke Girls was up by two tenths, making the timeslot change look very good after all. Elementary still got deceiving numbers, but at least they were stable.

The CW also did very good but at their own scale. DC's Legends of Tomorrow was up a tenth, reassuring its fans about its hit status. Because of that, The 100 was also up a tenth to a 0.6, a much more impressive number than what it was pulling the last few weeks. FOX, of course, had a good night with American Idol, up one tenth.

Here are today's questions:
1- Will Grey's Anatomy go lower than 2 this season?
2- What will NBC do with Shades of Blue's season 2? Where will they put it? Summer? Same as this year?
3- With the new numbers, does 2 Broke Girls have chances of coming back next year?
4- Will the CW renew The 100?
