Preliminary Ratings: Thursday 01/18/2018

ABC had the winter premieres of its three Thursday night dramas and took second place on the night, lead by GREY'S ANATOMY's 8.2 million viewers and 2.2 rating in Adults 18-49. That is up 700,000 viewers and 20% in the demo, from its last episode, back on November 16. SCANDAL was also up from mid-November, topping NBC for second in the hour, behind CBS. Crime drama, HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER was only up slightly, coming in a close third for the 10 PM hour.

The CW also had winter premieres, with SUPERNATURAL scoring nearly two million viewers and a 0.6 rating in Adults 18-49. That is on par with its fall finale, in early December. ARROW was up from its fall finale.

CBS topped the night, taking three of the four categories, with ABC doing better in the A18-34 demographic.

THE FOUR is up from last week, growing two-tenths of a point in the A18-49 demo and adding a half a million viewers. That allowed FOX to top NBC for third place.

NBC was slightly up, week-to-week, but all five shows pulled mediocre ratings on the night, allowing The CW to tie NBC in the A18-34 demo.
