Ratings: Alaska Daily Returns Steady, Independence Ends on Low Note

In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ Young Sheldon led this Thursday both in total viewers and in the demo.

ABC | Station 19 (3.8 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating, per Nielsen finals) was steady, while Grey’s Anatomy (3.1 mil/0.4, read recap) matched its audience low and also dipped in the demo. Back from a three-and-a-half month break (!), Alaska Daily (2.8 mil/0.2) was right on part with its fall finale (2.5 mil/0.2) and its fall averages (2.9 mil/0.2).

CBS | Young Sheldon (7.6 mil/0.6, read post mortems) was steady in the demo, Ghosts (6.5 mil/0.5) and Todd (4.6 mil/0.3) dipped, and CSI: Vegas (3.2 mil/0.3) ticked up.

THE CW | Walker (620K/0.1) hit an audience low, while fellow “bubble” drama Walker Independence (441K/0.0, read post mortem) matched lows with its finale.

FOX | Next Level Chef (2 mil/0.4), Animal Control (1.5 mil/0.3) and Call Me Kat (1.2 mil/0.2) were all steady.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. This is only an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please, no wagering.
