Paradise lost — badly. Fox’s “Paradise Hotel” revival premiered to very un-heavenly Nielsen numbers on Thursday, drawing just a 0.5 rating/2 share among adults 18-49 and 1.4 million total viewers.

CBS won primetime thanks to “The Big Bang Theory,” “Young Sheldon” and its “Mom” season finale.

Led by “Grey’s Anatomy,” ABC was second. NBC came in third, which means you pretty much know where Fox ended up among the Big 4 broadcasters.

CBS was first in ratings with a 1.1 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. “Big Bang Theory” at 8 p.m. posted a 1.9/10 and 12.3 million viewers. “Young Sheldon” at 8:30 put up a 1.5/7 and 10.3 million viewers. At 9, “Mom” landed a 1.1/5 and 8.2 million viewers. “Life in Pieces” at 9:30 had a 0.8/4 and 5.7 million viewers. At 10, “S.W.A.T.” got a 0.7/3 and 5.1 million viewers.

Fox and Telemundo tied for fourth in ratings, both with a 0.5/2. Fox was fourth in viewers with 1.44 million, Telemundo was fifth with 1.41 million.
