It was all reruns, all the time on the broadcast networks Thursday night, and per usual when that happens, CBS led the field by a pretty wide margin.

Paced by "The Big Bang Theory," CBS led all three hours of primetime and averaged 8.8 million viewers and a 5.6 rating/9 share in households. FOX (4.8 million, 3.2/5) finished a distant second. ABC took third with 3.4 million viewers and a 2.3/4, while NBC (2.15 million, 1.5/2) came in fourth. The CW drew about 900,000 viewers and a 0.6/1.

CBS also led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 1.9 rating. FOX scored a 1.1 to come in second, while ABC (0.9), NBC (0.8) and The CW (0.3) all fell below the 1.0 mark.
