Prime-Time Ratings: Thursday

Thursday night's fast nationals: The Big Bang Theory new night theory panned out, Grey's was strong, My Generation was not, Outsourced did ok, and CBS won the night with The Mentalist as the night's most-watched show overall. Josef Adalian analyzes.

Some ratings tweets:
@maskedscheduler  Returning shows generally off from last year's premieres.
@weinmanj 
It seems like the ratings successes so far this season are hits being up from last year (Glee, 2.5, MF) not new shows...So BBT did good; COMMUNITY at its previous level. Not good for COMMUNITY since its ratings are still bad, but no worse...Numbers for BIG BANG are inconclusive - very good but maybe not good enough to renew other networks' faith in 3-cam. Future weeks will tell.
@HitFixDaniel  "Vampire Diaries" tied "My Generation" in the 18-49 demo, which amuses me, but probably doesn't amuse ABC.
@spotupj 
Five 4.0+ series premieres during last season's premiere week (Flashfwd, Modern Fam, Cougar, Cleveland, NCISLA). Zero this yr. Three at 3.9...With 3.3's for Mentalist and PP, both below what I expected, #JerseyShore is gonna have a real shot to win 10pm hour. Don't kill messenger. ...Four of the top six series premieres of the week were comedies with big to huge lead-ins.
@Zap2ItRick  "Grey's" was No. 1 in 18-49 but down a good ways from last year. Bieber didn't make "CSI" any younger...Horrible reviews didn't hurt Shat My Dad Says or "Outsourced" this week, as both held most of their lead-ins.
@ditzkoff  CBS says 12.48 million viewers for $#*! My Dad Says. F*(% that $#*!.
@badgate NBC had the highest median age on Wednesday night and the lowest on Thursday night 40.6
