NBC’s Thursday ratings have fallen so far that it was bested this week by cable stations such as the NFL Network and TBS.
NBC rated a low 1.1 primetime rating among the coveted 18-49 demographic on October 10, tying the network’s worst ever in-season Thursday night average ever. NBC came in seventh place behind CBS, the NFL Network, ABC, Fox, Univision, and TBS.
Deadline Hollywood reports that every one of NBC’s scripted shows except Parks & Rec have seen weekly drops of 20% or more.
NBC does have several strong shows, including its Monday night breakout hit The Blacklist starring James Spader.
One of the most surprising ratings dips was NBC’s Michael J. Fox Show dropped 23% from its debut.
