A relatively quiet Thursday night on the broadcast networks found a couple of usual suspects sitting on top of the ratings heap. "Hell's Kitchen," which scored its biggest total audience in five weeks, and "The Big Bang Theory" tied for the best adults 18-49 rating, and "Big Bang" had the most viewers.

ABC's "Motive" fell in returning from an NBA Finals-induced hiatus, and "Rookie Blue" was off a little bit as well.

CBS brought in 6.2 million viewers and a 4.1 rating/7 share in households for the night, beating out ABC (4.6 million, 3.1/5) for the No. 1 spot. FOX (3.8 million, 2.4/4) finished third. NBC (2.35 million, 1.6/3) was fourth, and The CW trailed with a little under 700,000 viewers and a 0.5/1.

FOX led the 18-49 demographic, albeit with just a 1.4 rating. CBS took second with a 1.2, followed by ABC at 1.0. NBC (0.7) and The CW (0.3) both fell below the 1.0 mark.
