Thursday TV Ratings 3/26/20: A Million Little Things, Outmatched and Deputy All Steady for Finales, SVU Returns Higher (UPDATED)

Like most nights this week, last night was a night of small declines overall on broadcast.

The most noticeable decline was on ABC. Grey's Anatomy topped the night once again, but it did so with two tenths less than last week. With 1.4/1.3 halves, it could adjust up, but as of right now it's one of very few shows this week down multiple tenths. At 8, Station 19 was down a tenth to a 1.2. That's still a full two tenths ahead of the second season's average, continuing a strong season for Station 19 ratings-wise. A Million Little Things aired its season finale and was the only ABC show steady from last week with a 0.7, down four tenths from its first season finale but still. acceptable for the 10 o'clock hour. How To Get Away With Murder will enter next week to finish up its final season. That show most recently hit a 0.4, so AMLT is still three tenths ahead of that.

NBC had Superstore and Brooklyn Nine-Nine starting off the night steady from last week. Behind them, a special double-episode airing of Indebted was... not. It was a full three tenths below Will & Grace's rating at 9, getting a 0.4 there versus W&G's 0.7. At 9:30, it was down two tenths from its own rating last week with a 0.3. The show showed a bit of potential last week after rising to a new series high, but all of that went out the window this week. At 10, Law & Order: SVU was back after a month off and rose a tenth from its most recent rating, rising an incredible four tenths from its Indebted lead-in.

Fox had season (series?) finales for two-thirds of its lineup, and both shows were steady. Outmatched and Deputy both held at 0.6, following a declining Last Man Standing.

CBS had repeats at 0.8/0.7/0.7/0.6/0.5, with all of the comedies tying or beating the competing original episodes they aired against, aside from Superstore.

Once again, nobody cared about The CW's Katy Keene and slightly more people cared about Legacies, with both shows steady from last week.

Finals Update: Station 19 (-0.1), Deputy (-0.1), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (-0.1) and repeats of The Neighborhood (-0.1) and the CBS legal drama (-0.1) adjusted down.
