Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/8/21

FINALS UPDATE: Station 19 (0.8) and B Positive (0.5) adjusted up.

  • ABC's new drama Rebel (0.5) had a fairly quiet start in the 10/9c hour, looking no better than most of the A Million Little Things episodes in this slot all season. A Station 19 (0.7) and Grey's Anatomy (0.9) crossover in the preceding hours was pretty similar to last week.
  • NBC saw a big fall for week two of the Law and Order: SVU (0.9) and Law and Order: Organized Crime (0.8) pairing, though SVU remained way ahead of its season high from before last Thursday. Manifest (0.5) was also on the downturn in the 8/7c hour.
  • CBS perhaps benefited from the weaker NBC and was mostly a bit up from last week's prelims with Young Sheldon (0.7), week two of United States of Al (0.6), Mom (0.6), B Positive (0.4) and Clarice (0.3). Last Man Standing (0.4) returned at 9/8c to lead into The Moodys (0.3), and the CW's Walker (0.2) and Legacies (0.1) were back from a break.

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 4/7/21

FINALS UPDATE: Home Economics (0.6), The Conners (0.7), Chicago Fire (0.8) and Chicago PD (0.8) adjusted up.

  • ABC's new comedy Home Economics (0.5) looked like a pretty typical American Housewife episode on premiere night, down a notch from its The Goldbergs (0.6) lead-in and its The Conners (0.6) lead-out. Later in the night, A Million Little Things (0.4) returned to its very first timeslot on Wednesday at 10/9c, matching its last Thursday rating with a second 9:30 edition of The Conners (0.6) leading into it.
  • The CW premiered drama Kung Fu with a 0.2 in the 8/7c hour. It had a solid total viewer audience of 1.373 million, more than double any Riverdale audience in the hour this season. Nancy Drew ticked back up to a preliminary 0.1 at 9/8c.
  • NBC's Chicago trio (0.8/0.7/0.7) had a mostly down night after returning so well a week ago, but it was still enough to rout CBS' Tough As Nails (0.4), SEAL Team (0.4) and S.W.A.T. (0.4). Fox led the way with steady The Masked Singer (1.1) and Game of Talents (0.6).

Spotted Ratings, Tuesday 4/6/21

FINALS UPDATE: NCIS (1.0), FBI (0.8), FBI: Most Wanted (0.7) and This Is Us (0.8) adjusted up.

  • Back from another break, the This Is Us slump continued with another new low 0.7, which will certainly finish below the previous low 0.84 even with an upward adjustment. Its return was also no help to the surrounding programs, Young Rock (0.5) and Kenan (0.4) and New Amsterdam (0.4).
  • ABC's Pooch Perfect (0.4) had a rough week two, dropping behind all preliminary results for previous occupant To Tell the Truth in the hour.
  • In happier news, The Flash (0.3) was on the rebound for the CW, and the CBS dramas (0.9/0.7/0.6) returned from a couple weeks off in fairly steady fashion.

Spotted Ratings, Monday 4/5/21

FINALS UPDATE: Championship Central (1.2), NCAA Championship (4.1, +1.1) and America's Most Wanted (0.4) adjusted up while The Neighborhood (R) (0.5, -0.7) adjusted down.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 4/4/21

FINALS UPDATE: America's Funniest Home Videos (0.6), The Equalizer (0.7) and Ellen's Game of Games (0.3) adjusted up.

  • With no more basketball help, CBS was on the downswing with The Equalizer (0.6), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.5) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.4), while The Rookie (0.5) perked up following American Idol (0.7/0.8) to give ABC a win in each hour.
  • It was very ugly on the other big four networks as Fox's Bless the Harts fell to a 0.1 without its usual animated teammates, and two-hour special Malika the Lion Queen (0.1/0.2) did not do much better. NBC's Ellen's Game of Games fell to a 0.2 leading into Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.2).

Spotted Ratings, Thursday 4/1/21

FINALS UPDATE: Station 19 (0.8), Grey's Anatomy (0.9), Young Sheldon (0.7), United States of Al (0.6), Law and Order: SVU (1.7) and Law and Order: Organized Crime (1.6) adjusted up while Clarice (0.2) adjusted down.

  • NBC got a serious breakout performance from its two-hour Law and Order crossover as Christopher Meloni returned to the universe, with SVU (1.6) posting the biggest rating for a scripted series without a football lead-out this season and Meloni's Organized Crime premiere (1.5) not far behind. It will be the biggest night for SVU in the Plus era by a wide margin (its previous high was a 182 way back in 2004).
  • Leading into the crossover was the season three premiere of Manifest (0.6), nearly a year after its last season's finale. It was down from its last season premiere (0.9 on Monday at 10/9c in January 2020).
  • The night's other premieres ranged from quiet (a 0.5 for sitcom United States of Al leading out of Young Sheldon (0.6)) to disastrous (a 0.3/0.2 return for The Moodys following Hell's Kitchen (0.7)).
  • And ABC's Station 19 (0.7), Grey's Anatomy (0.8) and A Million Little Things (0.4) took a hit against the stronger NBC competition.

Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 3/31/21

FINALS UPDATE: American Housewife (0.5), Chicago Med (0.9), Chicago Fire (1.0), Chicago PD (1.0) and The Masked Singer (1.2) adjusted up.

  • One Chicago (0.8/0.9/0.9) had a strong return from a week off, matching its finals and beating its prelims from two weeks ago.
  • But it was even to down for most of the rest of broadcast, with ABC's comedies (0.5/0.4/0.5/0.3) eyeing potential new lows. Fox's Game of Talents fell to its first prelim 0.6 after The Masked Singer (1.1), and Nancy Drew hit the CW's second preliminary 0.0 of the week.
