[TV] Ratings: Scandal Leads A Quiet Halloween In The Adults 18-49 Demographic

But CBS wins the night...
Ratings were down on Thursday thanks to lower overall viewing on Halloween and several reruns. Scandal was the top show in the demographic by staying about even (and rising in viewers) but CBS won the most total viewers. The Millers, The Crazy Ones and The Vampire Diaries all fell. Meanwhile, Reign was down in viewers but even in the demographic. The X Factor ran a clip show that not many people watched. The numbers may change slightly for NBC, as a Cincinnati affiliate aired an NFL game.
CBS won with 9.4 million viewers and a 5.9 rating/10 share in households, followed by ABC (8.4 million, 5.3/9), NBC (4.45 million, 2.9/5), FOX (2.6 million, 1.7/3) and The CW (1.85 million, 1.3/2). In the adults 18-49 demographic, ABC won with a 2.6 rating, followed by CBS (2.0), NBC (1.4), FOX (0.7) and The CW (0.7).
