Preliminary Ratings: Thursday 01/05/2017

CBS wins the first Thursday night of the new year, with the return of its comedy line up, lead by THE BIG BANG THEORY with 16.7 million viewers and a 3.6 rating in Adults 18-49. The network was #1 in all categories, except the younger, A18-34 demographic, which was edged out by ABC. 10 PM drama, PURE GENIUS shows us why 13 episodes was more than enough as it was lowest rated show, in the demographics, than any other Big 4 program of the night.

ABC got traction from TRUTH & LIES: MENENDEZ BROTHERS. The ABC news special had the best numbers for any non-CBS program and won the final two hours in the younger demographics.

 A double shot of HELL'S KITCHEN, from FOX, allowed it to edge NBC in the younger demos. The two episodes performed better than former occupants of the night, ROSEWOOD and PITCH.

NBC's Thursday night line up returned after a two month hiatus, but NBC still managed on a tie with FOX for third place on the night. THE BLACKLIST barely beat out soon to end PURE GENIUS at 10 PM, giving question on if the drama should continue after this season.
