In the latest TV show ratings, Young Sheldon’s season finale led Thursday in both the demo and in total viewers.
Sheldon opened CBS’ night with 6.7 million viewers and a 0.6 rating, steady week-to-week; TVLine readers gave the finale an average grade of “B”; read post mortem. United States of Al (4.6 mil/0.4, reader grade “B+”) dipped with its series finale, while the similarly cancelled How We Roll (3.3 mil/0.3, 3 mil/0.3) was down a bit with its final double pump.
Bull closed things out with 3.5 mil (its smallest audience to date) and a 0.3 rating, ahead of next week’s series finale.
Over on ABC, Station 19‘s season finale (4 mil/0.5), Grey’s Anatomy (3.6 mil/0.5, read recap) and the recently renewed Big Sky‘s season finale (2.4 mil/0.2, reader grade “A-“) were all steady in the demo, though the latter added a few eyeballs(/Supernatural fans?).
NBC’s Law & Order (3.8 mil/0.4, season grade “B”; read recap) and Organized Crime (3.3 mil/0.5) were both steady, while SVU (4.4 mil/0.5, finale grade “A”; read post mortem) dipped with its own season finale.
Fox’s MasterChef Junior (1.9 mil/0.2) was steady, while the recently renewed Welcome to Flatch did a bit better with this week’s double pump (870K/0.2, 650K/0.1).
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.
