-Ratings Breakdown:
It was an easy Thursday overnight victory for CBS, as usual, with its combination of The Big Bang Theory (11.2 rating/18 share), Two and a Half Men (8.8/14), Person of Interest (9.4/15) and recent entry Elementary (7.2/12). The Eye net finished first in each of the six half-hours, The Big Bang Theory was the top-rated show of the evening, and Big Bang, Two and a Half Men and Person of Interest were all up from the year-ago time period. Elementary, in contrast, dipped by eight percent from former time period occupant The Mentalist (7.8/13 on 11/17/11), and is not necessarily the hit CBS is hoping for.

Veteran Grey’s Anatomy on ABC remains the alphabet net’s top-rated Thursday entry, of course, with a respectable 6.6/10 from 9-10 p.m. and growth of 69 percent from the 8:30 p.m. portion of lead-in Last Resort (#3: 3.9/ 6). On the fence drama Last Resort scored a 4.1/ 7 overall from 8-9 p.m., which was 34 percent below a special edition of 20/20 on the year-ago evening (6.2/10). At this point, it is safe to say there is no future for Last Resort.

At 10 p.m. on ABC, sophomore Scandal finished second with a typical 4.7/ 8 in the overnights. Comparably, the retention for Scandal out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Grey’s Anatomy (both Shonda Rhimes dramas) was 71 percent.

On Fox, respectable The X Factor at 8 p.m. (#2: 5.5/ 9) led into a third-place 3.8/ 6 for tired Glee at 9 p.m., which dipped by 37 percent from the 8:30 p.m. portion of The X Factor (6.0/ 9). Moving from Tuesday to Thursday has not been beneficial. Like any high school based series historically (think Room 222 and The White Shadow, in particular) the obstacle Glee faces is the aging “kids.” It might be time for the series to officially graduate this spring.

Elsewhere, NBC remained out of the competitive loop with its line-up of 30 Rock (#4: 2.6/ 4), Up All Night (#4: 2.4/ 4), which is unlikely to benefit after the planned re-tooling, The Office (#4: 3.0/ 5), Parks and Recreation (#4: 2.4/ 4) and Rock Center With Brian Williams (#3: 3.0/ 5). And The CW had nothing unusual to report with demo-friendly The Vampire Diaries (#5: 2.1/ 3) and recent entry Beauty and the Beast (#5: 1.3/ 2), which recently received a full season episode order despite the lack of interest.
