CBS’ The Big Bang Theory again towered over all prime-time programming Thursday before the rest of the network’s prime-time lineup sagged and kept sagging.

Big Bang opened the night with 504,192 D-FW viewers. That’s nearly twice the audience of any other Thursday night attraction. ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and CBS’ post-Bang sitcom, The Millers, were the runners-up with 255,647 viewers each.

The Millers won its 7:30 to 8 p.m. slot before Grey’s took the 8 p.m. hour. At 9 p.m., ABC’s Scandal nipped CBS’ competing Elementary for the top spot.

Big Bang likewise had Thursday’s biggest haul among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds. The second half-hour of Fox’s The X Factor then won from 7:30 to 8 p.m. before Grey’s ran first in the 8 p.m. hour. Scandal and Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast tied for the most 18-to-49-year-olds at 9 p.m.

ABC’s first-year Once Upon A Time in Wonderland continued to struggle, particularly in the 18-to-49 demographic. It ran fifth at 7 p.m., with CW’s The Vampire Diaries slipping into third place for the full hour.

In Thursday’s local news derby results, CBS11 had the most total viewers at 10 p.m. and Fox4 took the gold among 25-to-54-year-olds, the main advertiser target audience for news programming.

Fox4 again romped with twin wins at 6 a.m., with a particularly dominant showing in the 25-to-54 measurement.

The 6 p.m. firsts went to CBS11 in total viewers and WFAA8 among 25-to-54-year-olds. At 5 p.m., NBC5 led in total viewers while Fox4 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds.
