CBS saw its entire Thursday primetime lineup slip by double digits last night versus the prior week — sucks to not have premieres, doesn’t it?

Still, Les Moonves’ broadcast network hung on to win the evening outright. Behind CBS, NBC leapfrogged ABC for second, thanks to strong performances from “The Good Place” and “Chicago PD.”

Of course, NBC also had the two local NFL markets last night for “Thursday Night Football,” and that certainly doesn’t hurt these early ratings — but it means the broadcaster could adjust down in final numbers.

CBS was first in ratings with a 1.5 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Big Bang Theory” at 8 p.m. earned a 3.0/11 and 13.9 million viewers. “The Great Indoors” at 8:30 slipped 15 percent from its debut to a 1.7/6 — it had 8.3 million viewers. At 9, “Mom” got a 1.3/4 and 7 million viewers. “Life in Pieces” at 9:30 received a 1.3/4 and 6 million viewers. “Pure Genius” at 10 settled for a 0.9/3 and 5.4 million viewers.

NBC was second in ratings with a 1.4/5 and in viewers with 5.9 million. “Superstore” at 8 had a 1.2/5 and 4 million viewers. At 8:30, “The Good Place” posted a 1.4/5 and 4.4 million viewers. “Chicago Med” at 9 received a 1.6/5 and 7.4 million viewers. At 10, “The Blacklist” got a 1.3/5 and 6.1 million viewers.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.3/5 and in viewers with 5.1 million. “Grey’s Anatomy” at 8 earned a 2.1/8 and 7.5 million viewers. At 9, “Notorious” managed a 0.8/3 and 3.6 million viewers. “How to Get Away With Murder” at 10 put up a 1.1/4 and 4 million viewers.

Fox was fourth in ratings with a 0.8/3 and in viewers with 3.1 million. “Rosewood” at 8 had a 0.8/3 and 3.4 million viewers. At 9, “Pitch” got a 0.9/3 and 2.8 million viewers.

Telemundo was fifth in ratings with a 0.7/2 and sixth in viewers with 1.76 million.

The CW and Univision tied for sixth in ratings, both with a 0.6/2. CW was fifth in total viewers with 1.79 million; Univision was seventh with 1.70 million.

For CW, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time is Now” at 8 received a 0.6/2 and 1.7 million viewers. “Supernatural” at 9 had a 0.7/2 and 1.8 million viewers.
