Total Viewers:
Fox: 8.36 million, CBS: 4.39, ABC: 3.80, NBC: 2.25, CW: 618,000

Adults 18-49:
Fox: 2.0 rating/15 share, ABC: 0.5/ 4, CBS 0.4/ 3, NBC: 0.3/ 2, CW: 0.1/ 1

As always, Thursday Night Football on Fox led the broadcast networks on this third Thursday in November as a result of the New England Patriots (25) / Atlanta Falcons (0) matchup.

ABC and CBS shared the distant No. 2 spot with ABC’s combination of dramas “Station 19”, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Blue Sky” second in adults 18-49 and CBS’ sitcom block and fading drama “Bull” second in total viewers. Take a look:

ABC/Thursday
8:00 p.m. – “Station 19”
Viewers: 4.64 million (#3), Adults 18-49: 0.6/ 5 (#2t)

9:00 p.m. – “Grey’s Anatomy”
Viewers: 4.01 million (#3), Adults 18-49: 0.6/ 4 (#2)

10:00 p.m. – “Big Sky”
Viewers: 2.75 million (#3), Adults 18-49: 0.3/ 2 (#2t)

—–
CBS/Thursday
8:00 p.m. – “Young Sheldon”
Viewers: 6.71 million (#2), Adults 18-49: 0.7/ 5 (#2)

8:30 p.m. – “United States of Al”
Viewers: 4.63 million (#2), Adults 18-49: 0.5/ 3 (#3)

9:00 p.m. – “Ghosts”
Viewers: 5.24 million (#2), Adults 18-49: 0.5/ 4 (#3)

9:30 p.m. – “B Positive”
Viewers: 3.92 million (#3), Adults 18-49: 0.4/ 3 (#3)

10:00 p.m. – “Bull”
Viewers: 2.93 million (#2), Adults 18-49: 0.3/ 2 (#2t)

A few observations:
-ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” should probably call it quits at this point. Now in season 18, this can’t be cheap to produce.
-“Ghost” on CBS is not the breakout hit the network would lead you to believe. Respectable is the key word.
-Chuck Lorre comedies “United States of Al” and “B Positive”, both now in season two, are not exhibiting signs they can eventually stand on their own.
-CBS drama “Bull”, which should have ended a few seasons back, is highly unlikely to make it to 2022-23.

Elsewhere, NBC’s “The Backlist” (Viewers: #4, 2.86 million; A18-49: #4, 0.3/ 2 at 8 p.m. only survives because of the eyeballs tuning into Netflix to see it. It led into encore telecasts of “Law & Order: SVU” and “Law & Order: Organized Crime.” And The CW featured dramas “Walker” (Viewers: #5, 850,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 1 at 8 p.m.), which has declined sharply from its promising first rebooted season, and “Legacies” (Viewers: #5, 387,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 1 at 9 p.m.).
