CBS’ lineup of repeats grabbed the most viewers Thursday night, while ABC’s “Wipeout”-led set of originals snagged the top spot in the adults 18-49 demographic. It wasn’t an especially auspicious night for anyone, though.

CBS averaged 6.75 million viewers and a 4.4 rating/8 share in households, beating out ABC (6 million, 3.6/6) for the top spot overall. FOX (4 million, 2.5/5) came in third. NBC was fourth with just over 2 million viewers and a 1.3/2, while The CW trailed with 861,000 viewers and a 0.6/1.

No network managed to break the 2.0 mark in adults 18-49. ABC’s 1.7 was good enough to finish in first place, followed by FOX at 1.3 and CBS at 1.2. NBC drew a scant 0.7, and The CW came in at 0.3.
