Supernatural said goodbye after 15 seasons on November 19, and its move to 9/8c resulted in a few more viewers this week (1.4 million, from 1.0), but the primetime lineup didn’t stand a chance against Thursday Night Football, which was up (2.6 rating among adults 18-49, 9.6 million viewers).

Elsewhere on the night, Station 19 was down a bit, while Young Sheldon and Superstore were steady.
