TV Ratings: Grey's Rises With Alex Reveal, Young Sheldon Eyes New Low

Greys Anatomy Alex Leaves Izzie

ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy this Thursday drew 6.3 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating, rising to its best numbers since its Jan. 23 midseason opener.

Bookending the reveal of Dr. Alex Karev’s fate (which 51 percent of TVLine readers no less than “hated”), Station 19 (6.1 mil/1.0) ticked down, while A Million Little Things (3.7 mil/0.6) was steady.


THE CW | Katy Keene (515K/0.1) added a few eyeballs while grasping onto that precious 0.1 rating.

FOX | Last Man Standing (3.5 mil/0.6) and Deputy (3.3 mil/0.5) each dipped in the demo, while Outmatched (2.1 mil/0.5) was steady.

CBS | Young Sheldon (8.5 mil/0.9) dipped a tenth in the demo to mark a series low; everything else was steady. (Sorry, I have a phoner to get to.)

NBC | Leading out of a Superstore rerun, Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.9 mil/0.6) and Will & Grace (2.1 mil/0.5) each ticked up, while Indebted (1.4 mil/0.3) hit and tied its lowest numbers thus far.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our daily-ish ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increases in delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms. These Live+Same Day numbers instead are used to illustrate any trends or high/low superlatives. Happy Fun Ball may stick to certain types of skin.
