ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” rebounded well from its series low 1.4 rating a week ago, rising three-tenths to a 1.7 rating in the adults 18-49 demo this week. Its lead-out, “A Million Little Things,” also managed to tick back up from a 1.0 to a 1.1, while “How to Get Away with Murder” slipped a tenth to a series low 0.5.
After taking last week off, CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” returned to win the primetime ratings again, this time with a 2.3 and 13.30 million viewers, down slightly from its last outing’s season high 2.6 rating and 13.97 million viewers. “Young Sheldon” similarly fell from a 2.0 to a 1.8 with its return, but was still the night’s second-highest-rated broadcast.
Rounding out the night for CBS, “Mom” (1.3) and “Fam” (0.9) each managed to tick up a tenth or two from their last episodes, but the same could not be said for “S.W.A.T.,” which inched down from a 0.9 to a 0.8.
On NBC, “The Titan Games” (1.1) stayed even week-to-week, as did “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (0.8) and “Will & Grace” (0.7). “Law & Order: SVU,” however, climbed up from its 0.8 last Thursday to a 0.9 – winning the 10 p.m. hour.
Elsewhere, FOX’s “Gotham” (0.6) and “The Orville” (0.7) both held steady yet again. Meanwhile, with a “Charmed” rerun (0.2) filling in for its usual “Supernatural” lead-in, the CW’s “Legacies” dropped from its previous episode’s 0.4 to a season low 0.2.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.3/6||1.1/5||0.9/5||0.7/3||0.2/1|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
