-Ratings Scorecard:
“The Big Bang Theory,” which only has 10 episodes left, topped the evening with a hefty 9.5 ragting/16 share in the household overnights in the 8 p.m. half-hour. And that led into a dominant 7.9/13 for prequel “Young Sheldon” at 8:30 p.m. Talk is circulating that there may be a second spin-off from “The Big Bang Theory,” but there are no details.

Next on CBS was “Mom” at an above average 6.0/10 (#1) in the 9 p.m. half-hour, which led into a 4.2/ 7 (#1) for recent entry “Fam” at 9:30 p.m. Comparably, “Fam” is slightly below recent entry “Murphy Brown” and year-ago time period occupant “Life in Pieces” (which is still waiting to be scheduled).

The Eye net’s “S.W.A.T.” (#1: 4.0/ 8) led the 10 p.m. hour, beating competing “Law & Order: SVU” on NBC (#2: 3.3/ 7) and “How to Get Away With Murder” on ABC (#3: 2.1/ 4) by 31 percent and 80 percent, respectively.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was consistent “Grey’s Anatomy” (#2: 5.7/10 at 8 p.m.) into a 4.3/ 7 (#2) for recently relocated “A Million Little Things.” Comparably, “A Million Little Things” was on par with year-ago time period occupant “Scandal” and is expected back for a second season.

In time period premiere news, NBC’s “Will & Grace” scored a 2.3/ 4 (#4) at 9:30 p.m., which increased by 28 percent from lead-in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 1.8/ 3 at 9 p.m.). The former Fox sitcom dipped from lead-in “The Titan Games” (#3: 2.7/ 5) by 33 percent.
