ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” continued to dominate its 8 p.m. timeslot on Thursday evening. But despite a lack of “Thursday Night Football” competition, the rest of broadcast’s offerings failed to bring in significant viewership.

“Grey’s” drew a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49, down only one tenth of a point from its season premiere last week, and 8.3 million total viewers. But “Notorious” failed again in its second week to capitalize on a strong lead-in. The freshman drama drew a 1.1 demo rating and 4.6 million viewers in the 9 p.m. hour. That’s even in the demo with its series premier last week, but down 54% from its “Grey’s” lead-in. “How to Get Away With Murder” drew a 1.3, down one tenth of a point from its season premiere, and 4.4 million viewers.

ABC was the night’s top broadcaster, averaging a 1.6 rating and 6 share in the demo. CBS, which aired a lineup of reruns with no “Thursday Night Football” this week, tied NBC and its lineup of originals with a 1.2 / 4.

NBC comedies “Superstore” and “The Good Place” each drew a 1.2. The former was down 20% from last week and the latter was down 14%. “Chicago Med” followed with a 1.3, down one tenth. “The Blacklist” drew a 1.1, down 15%.

On Fox, “Rosewood” and “Pitch” continued to struggle, with the former drawing a 0.8 (up one tenth from last week’s season premiere) and the latter a 1.0 (down one tenth). Fox averaged a 0.9 / 3 on the night. The CW averaged a 0.3 / 1 with reruns.
