ABC’s double shot of its primetime Jeopardy!: Greatest of All Time and a two-hour ABC News special Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein helped the network dominate Thursday’s broadcast ratings.

Night 3 of Jeopardy!‘s GOAT tournament took the top spot overall with a 2.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic and 15.38 million viewers, down a tenth from Wednesday’s show but an audience best to date. The tourney resumes Tuesday night.

That led into Truth and Lies (1.1, 6.24M), which included interviews with several alleged Epstein victims. It was the second highest-rated show of the night.

Young Sheldon (1.0, 7.49M) paced CBS’ comedy lineup that all returned from their winter hiatus. It was steady with its last original and was the night’s second most-watched show now freed from Fox’s run of Thursday Night Football.

Also returning was NBC’s comedy lineup ,including the first in the final four-episode run of The Good Place (0.6, 2.20M).

Fox countered with the second weeks of originals for Last Man Standing (0.8, 4.39M) and Deputy (0.7, 3.97M), with the latter new series off just a tenth from last week’s series debut. Last Man Standing dipped two tenths.

The CW aired repeats.
