Thursday Final Nationals: ‘The Catch’ Return on ABC and ‘Kicking & Screaming’ Debut on Fox Both Underwhelm

CBS topped Thursday night in total viewers (7 million) and adults 25-54 (2.0 rating/7 share).

After a one-week absence, the TGIT dramas of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” helped ABC to win adults 18-34 (0.9/4) outright as well as possessing a share of the lead with CBS among adults 18-49 (1.4/5). Although the second season premiere of “The Catch” won the 10-11 p.m. hour in adults 18-49, adults 18-34 and adults 25-54, it ranked third in total viewers.

The night’s lone series debut — Fox’s “Survivor”-like competition “Kicking & Screaming” — ranked a distant fourth in all key figures (viewers and adult demos) in the 9-10 p.m. hour.

    The Catch flopped last year. Channing Dungey renewed it (along with a dozen other flops).

    The result? It flopped again (along with the dozen flops Ms. Dungey renewed).

    Well done Channing. Hope they give you a big bonus check for a job well done.
