'Welcome to Sweden'

All three broadcast networks airing originals Thursday night are subject to some ratings adjustment. Preseason NFL preempted programming in markets for ABC, CBS and NBC.

All told, Big Brother will still emerge the winner with a steady 2.3 rating among adults 18-49 on CBS.

But NBC could also see a lift for Welcome to Sweden. The renewed comedy was up two-tenths of a point from its most recent episode in back-to-back outings.

On ABC The Quest (0.7 adults) led into the finale of Rookie Blue (1.1 adults) — up two-tenths of a point from last week.
