In the latest TV show ratings, with CBS (and, well, The CW) in rerun mode: NBC’s Law & Order: SVU led Thursday both in the demo and in total viewers.
NBC | Law & Order (with 4.3 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating), SVU (4.4 mil/0.5) and Organized Crime (3.2 mil/0.4) each added eyeballs and held steady in the demo.
ABC | Station 19 (3.6 mil/0.4) and Grey’s Anatomy (3.2 mil/0.4, read recap) both dipped, while Diane Sawyer’s sitdown with Jeremy Renner (3.4 mil/0.3) drew the time slot’s best audience since Alaska Daily‘s series opener (and matched the freshman “bubble” show‘s highest demo rating).
FOX | Next Level Chef (1.9 mil/0.4) and Animal Control (1.2 mil/0.3) were both steady, while Call Me Kat (1.2 mil/0.3) ticked up in both measures and posted only its fourth 0.3 rating of the season-to-date.

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.
Kat will def see a final season. Pretty surprising it has lasted this long and past 50+ episodes. Hardly any comedies see that.
Kat performed better when it aired a half hour earlier.
And, just when Kat shows a little momentum, FOX substitutes Flatch repeats into its time slot next Thursday
Flatch brought fox’s ratings down on Thursday when they gave it Kat’s time slot. Fox should have switched back but didn’t. Why they are so vested in that show… their lowest rated… is beyond me. Scheduling mismanagement at its worst.
I’m giving Animal Control a chance even though I’m not into Joel McHale.
What about Fantasy Island? Like that show…
