NBC's official premiere of new comedy 1600 Penn drew just a 1.6 rating at 9:30 p.m. (but on par with what the time period had been averaging), airing out of The Office, which was up a tenth from its last episode to a 2.2. Earlier, 30 Rock returned up 27% to a 1.4. A repeat of 1600 Penn's preview episode drew a 1.4 at 8:30 p.m. At 10 p.m., Rock Center was up a tenth to a 1.1. NBC finished in third with a 1.5/4.
ABC's Scandal continued its strong sophomore season, hitting a new series high with a 2.8 rating, up 17% from its last episode. Grey's Anatomy also returned up 7% to a 3.1. Last Resort was up two tenths to a 1.2. ABC took second with a 2.4/7.
Over on The CW, the 18th Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards, which returned to broadcast television, drew a 0.6 rating with 18-49s and 1.9 million total viewers, the most in both measurements since 2006 (when it aired on The WB). It had aired on VH1 since 2008.
Fox's (0.9/3) Mobbed was up a tenth from last week to a 1.2.
