In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ Clarice debuted to 4 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating — right on par with what Evil averaged (3.6 mil/0.5) in the Thursday time slot last season. TVLine readers gave the premiere an average grade of “B-,” with 74 percent planning to stay tuned.

Opening the Eye’s night, Young Sheldon (7.3 mil/0.8) and B Positive (5.1 mil/0.6) returned steady, with the former leading Thursday in both measures. Mom (5.3 mil/0.7) and The Unicorn (4 mil/0.5) ticked up. Fun fact via CBS: All four sitcoms hit season highs in audience.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
