“Young Sheldon” ticked up to a season high rating on Thursday night.
The “Big Bang Theory” spinoff scored a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49, and was watched by just under 9 million total viewers, also a high for season 3 to date. However, it still lost out to “Grey’s Anatomy” for the top scripted show crown, with the ABC drama scoring a 1.3 and 6.3 million total viewers, even on last week.
“Mom” also got a ratings bump for CBS, hopping up from a 0.8 last time around to a 0.9. But new fall shows “Carol’s Second Act” and “The Unicorn” didn’t have as much luck, with the former falling from a 0.7 to a 0.6, and the latter from a 0.8 to a 0.7. “Evil” rounded out the night even at a 0.5.
“A Million Little Things” was even on last week for ABC at a 0.8, while “How to Get Away With Murder” increased to a 0.5 this time around.
“Thursday Night Football” helped Fox to an easy win overall. The highly competitive game between the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers, which bubbled over into an ugly brawl near the end, delivered around 11.7 million viewers (up 24% from last week’s fast nationals) across the night and a 3.3 average rating.
Over on NBC, both “Perfect Harmony” and “Will & Grace” sang slightly false notes in comparison with last week, both falling from a 0.5 to a 0.4. “Superstore” and “Law & Order: SVU” led the night for the network with a 0.7, the latter being up from a 0.6 last week. “The Good Place” was even with a 0.6.
“The Latin Grammys” delivered a strong 1.1 rating and 3.1 million viewers for Univision, meaning the network topped NBC, CBS and ABC on Thursday night.
Finally on the CW, “Legacies” scared its way up to a 0.3 rating, matching its “Supernatural” lead-in.
