The CW finished in last-place last night in ratings despite debuting its “Vampire Diaries”-“Originals” spinoff, “Legacies.”

With “Grey’s Anatomy” back on its airwaves, ABC made it back to third place on Thursday, when Fox predictably won with its NFL football rights. “The Big Bang Theory” led CBS to a silver-medal finish.

Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast-national numbers for Fox are subject to significant adjustment.

Fox was first in ratings with a 2.6 rating/11 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 9.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. That was all “Thursday Night Football.”
