ABC had another week of TGIT--though fans didn't really appreciate The Catch as usual, which lost more than half of its Scandal lead-in. Other than that, Grey's Anatomy stays at its low, which is still well above what most shows have received in the ratings lately.

CBS made a smart move and replaced The Great Indoors with a rerun of The Big Bang Theory, with solid results. Mom subsequently rose to a 1.5 and topped the hour over the likes of Scandal and Chicago Med, while Life in Pieces and The Amazing Race are also both hanging in there. And the network managed to top the ratings in the Thursday at 10pm time slot, one that has caused them trouble for years.

FOX saw OK results from MasterChef Junior, and given The Mick just finished its season at a 0.7 rating, the 0.5s for the pair of reruns don't look half bad. Time will tell (10 days to be exact) if they're planning on opening a comedy hour there.

Over on NBC, Superstore showed that it's a great repeater relative to the ratings of new episodes, but new episode ratings are struggling to properly start off Thursday nights without support. Chicago Med continues to be the strongest of the shows, while The Blacklist is a huge asset for Sony that NBC probably is willing to cut ties with unless Sony works some of their magic (which they probably will).

Then there's The CW, which saw pretty typical results out of Supernatural and Riverdale; nothing amazing by their standards, but it could be much worse. Riverdale is still their #1 freshmen success this season.
