The Big Bang Theory (14.1 million/2.7 rating) made its return to Thursday nights, and it helped prop up much of the network's other offerings.
Young Sheldon (13.3 million/2.4 rating) returned and took a hit vs. its high flying premiere. Mom (9.6 million/1.8 rating) and Life in Pieces (7.7 million/1.5 rating) had solid premieres, but SWAT (7.5 million/1.3 rating) struggled to pull in a substantial audience amongst the 18-49 crowd.
NBC: Superstore (3.5 million/1.0 rating), The Good Place (3 million/1.0 rating), Will & Grace (5.6 million/1.5 rating), Great News (2.7 million/0.7 rating) and Chicago Fire (5.8 million/1.0 rating) all slipped.
Fox: Gotham (2.7 million/0.9 rating) was steady, while The Orville (3.8 million/1.0 rating) dropped two-tenths.
