TV Ratings 4/20/17: The Blacklist Returns With a Series Low, The Catch Gets Uglier (UPDATED)

Thursday night was pretty eventful, considering that only Fox aired their usual lineup. Grey's Anatomy was off on ABC, so Scandal aired a low-rated repeat that actually managed to tie The Catch, which hit a new ugly low of 0.6, which, unfortunately for ABC, was not even the lowest rated ABC drama of the week, despite hitting a 0.5 in its second half. It's lead-in, Scandal, was steady with last week. The CBS comedies took the night off. The Big Bang Theory repeated nicely again, tying for first with Scandal for the night. The (Not So) Great Indoors repeated pretty decently. The Amazing Race pulled double duty last night, up a bit at 9 but back down to 0.8 at 10 PM. Chicago Med on NBC took the night off, allowing for The Blacklist to have a two hour return. The first hour was steady with its last airing (which was also at 9), though the last hour was a series low 0.8, not improving the slot very much over its flop spin-off. Superstore was up a tenth after its low 0.8 from a few weeks ago, while Powerless was again stuck at 0.6. The CW's lineup was off for the night, and they instead aired a Supernatural repeat and a low-rated H1Z1 special, both at 0.2. Fox had their reality duo, and both bounced back a bit with lower competition.

Finals Update: All programs held their preliminary ratings.
