CBS rode a new episode of The Big Bang Theory to another big win Thursday night before rivals took some pieces of the pie.

Big Bang again ranked as the most-watched TV attraction of the entire day with 390,544 D-FW viewers and 160,844 in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

The second half-hour of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy the took over with twin wins while CBS’ The Odd Couple plummeted.

CBS regrouped by winning the 8 p.m. hour in total viewers with Mom and a Big Bang repeat. ABC’s slumping Scandal drooped to second place in both ratings measurements. Fox4’s 9 p.m. local newscast then swept its time slot.

Here are Thursday’s local news derby results.

Gannett8 ran first at 10 p.m. in total viewers while NBC5 led among 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 as usual ran the table at 6 a.m., with Gannett8 continuing to fall off the map in the key 25-to-54 demographic. The station again finished fourth while NBC5 and CBS11 tied for second.

NBC5 swept the 5 p.m. competitions. The 6 p.m. golds went to Fox4 in total viewers and Gannett8 among 25-to-54-year-olds.
