All of CBS’ Thursday shows were even. “The Big Bang Theory” (2.8, 14.5 million) and “Young Sheldon” (2.3, 12.9 million) were the top shows of the night. They were followed by “Mom” (1.6, 9.2 million), “Life in Pieces” (1.2, 7.1 million), and “SWAT” (1.0, 6.2 million).

For Fox, “The Four” (1.3, 3.7 million) was even.

On The CW, “Supernatural” (0.6, 1.7 million) and “Arrow” (0.4, 1.2 million) took a slight hit in total viewers.

CBS won the night with a 1.7 and 9.3 million viewers. ABC was second with a 1.6 and 6 million. Fox was third in the demo with a 1.3 but fourth in viewers with 3.7 million. NBC was fourth in the demo with a 1.0 but third in viewers with 4.2 million. The CW averaged a 0.5 and 1.5 million.
