Ratings: ‘The Blacklist: Redemption’ Premiere Can’t Save NBC’s Night

Two-hour “How to Get Away With Murder” season finale helps ABC in Thursday key demo win

A healthy “Grey’s Anatomy” led ABC to TV ratings victory in the key 18-49 demographic on Thursday — and the two-hour “How to Get Away With Murder” season finale after didn’t drag the network’s primetime average down too too much.

On NBC, the soft series debut of “The Blacklist: Redemption” couldn’t absolve the network from a fourth place demo tie with Fox. Univision actually beat both of them handily with awards show “Premios Lo Nuestro.”

CBS topped the evening in overall viewers, with the Disney broadcaster finishing as runner-up by that metric.

ABC was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted demo and second in total viewers with an average of 5.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. “Grey’s” at 8 p.m. scored a 2.0/8 and 7.6 million viewers. “HTGAWM” at 9 put up a 1.5/5 and 5 million viewers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 1.4/5 and first in viewers with 6.9 million. “The Big Bang Theory” at 8 earned a 2.8/11 and 13.2 million viewers. At 8:30, “The Great Indoors” posted a 1.5/5 and 7.5 million viewers. “Mom” at 9 had a 1.4/5 and 7.5 million viewers. At 9:30, “Life in Pieces” got a 1.2/4 and 6 million viewers. “Training Day” at 10 settled for a 0.7/3 and 3.7 million viewers.

Univision was third in ratings with a 1.3/5 and fourth in viewers with 3.3 million.

NBC and Fox tied for fourth in ratings, both with a 0.9/3. NBC was third in total viewers with 4 million, Fox was fifth with 3 million.

For NBC, “Superstore” at 8 received a 1.1/4 and 3.5 million viewers. At 8:30, “Powerless” managed a 0.7/3 and 2.3 million viewers. “The Blacklist” at 9 had a 0.9/3 and 4.9 million viewers. At 10, spinoff “The Blacklist: Redemption” premiered to an unimpressive 0.8/3 and 4.2 million viewers.

For Fox, “MasterChef Junior” at 8 got a 1.2/4 and 3.8 million viewers. At 9, “My Kitchen Rules” received a 0.7/3 and 2.2 million viewers.
