[via press release from NBC]

Thursday Primetime Results:

· "The Biggest Loser" (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.7 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) grew +8% week to week in adults 18-49(to a 1.3 rating from a 1.2). The 1.3 matches its top rating since the show's season premiere on Sept 11 (1.6).

· "Bad Judge" (1.2/4 in 18-49, 4.7 million viewers overall from 9-9:30 p.m. ET) held 92% of its 1.3 rating in 18-49 last week, as well as the 1.3 for the "Bad Judge" premiere two weeks ago. That makes "Bad Judge" the first new comedy on the Big 4 this season to finish within a tenth of its premiere rating in week three (among five new comedies to have run three weeks so far).

· "Bad Judge" retained 92% of its lead-in from "The Biggest Loser" in adults 18-49, and retained a full 100% in adults 18-34 (0.8 rating each) and adults 25-54 (1.6 rating each).

· "A-to-Z" (1.0/3 in 18-49, 3.4 million viewers overall from 9:30-10 p.m. ET) maintained 100% of last week's 1.0 rating and is running within 0.2 of a point of its premiere 1.2 of two weeks ago. The only new comedy on the Big 4 so far this fall to remain closer to its premiere rating in week 3 is "Bad Judge" (within 0.1).

· Last night's "A-to-Z" retained 83% of its adults 18-49 lead-in from "Bad Judge," up from last week's 77%. "A-to-Z" also held 88% of its lead-in in adults 18-34 (0.7 vs. 0.8) and retained 91% in women 18-34 (1.0 vs. 1.1).

· "Parenthood" (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.1 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) maintained 100% of its 1.3 rating of the prior two weeks and has now remained with a tenth of a point of its 1.4 season premiere through weeks two, three and four Note that the season-premiere 1.4 matched the highest "Parenthood" rating since Oct. 3, 2013. Despite the 10 p.m. hour, "Parenthood" maintained its 18-49 rating from half-hour to half-hour (1.3 vs. 1.3) and grew half-hour to half-hour in total viewers (4.2 million vs. 4.1 million).

· L+3: The previous week's "Parenthood" on Oct. 9 grew by +65% in 18-49 (to a 2.08 from a 1.26) and 1.8 million viewers overall (to 6.088 million from 4.250 million) going from L+SD to L+3.

· Upscale: "Parenthood" is the #1 most upscale primetime series on the Big 4 networks in, indexing at a 175 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes ("most current" L+3 results through the opening three weeks of the season, 100 represents an average concentration of those homes).
