The Catch0.62.99ABC
With Grey's Anatomy back, Scandal managed to gain a tenth in A18-49, though The Catch didn't see any bump, at the same 0.6. This puts it tied with Quantico and behind Once Upon a Time and Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. The Shonda name could save it, but she also has another show likely on next season's schedule as compensation. 

The Great Indoors, the only freshmen comedy CBS has not renewed, lost more than half of its Big Bang lead-in, and was low enough to allow Mom to rise from it. It hasn't been making its case for a last-minute renewal, and a move to Monday is coming shortly. At 10pm, The Amazing Race sunk down to a 0.7 A18-49 rating, something pretty typical for the time slot. Whether it comes back for another cycle or not likely depends on their wants and needs for winter filler and summer.

The CW is back in original mode this week, which resulted in the same ratings as their last outing. Riverdale isn't exactly a top-tier show for the network, but it holds decently onto its Supernatural lead-in.

FOX aired a clip show of MasterChef Junior to decent results, around on par with what Rosewood was doing in the fall, though Kicking and Screaming ticked down a tenth. Expect the former to become a summer show if it returns.

NBC decided to move Superstore to the higher-viewed 8:30pm time slot in attempt to raise the ratings, but they actually fell by a tenth from when it aired at 8pm. Regardless, it's up from what Powerless was doing and is the type of show that could rebound in the fall and/or with more lead-in support.
