Sitcom Scorecard: March 30-April 3, 2020

Only two evenings this week displayed original programming: underwhelming Wednesdays, and action-packed Thursday.  There are few changes to discuss on Wednesday besides American Housewife ticking up to a 0.7, as well as climbing .01 in seasonal averages to tie Brooklyn Nine-Nine (who went the other direction).  Elsewhere, CBS returned after (what would have been) March Madness to phenomenal ratings fit for one season ago.  Young Sheldon (+.30) and Mom (+.20) struck season highs and resembled their ratings from one year prior.  Man With a Plan returned strong for its 4th season, though it lost over 30% retention from YS. 

Broke debuted to an impressive 0.9, keeping up with Mom's windfall.  It is perhaps the side effect of COVID19 CBS delivered strong, and lamentful Carol's Second Act and The Unicorn didn't experience the same excitement.  MWAP and Broke have not been determined for cancellation odds as two showings need to be displayed.  Last Man Standing ticked down a tenth to 0.7 this week as it stood alone, while NBC also experienced an underperforming evening.  Superstore (0.7) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (0.5) delivered soft, but Indebted (0.3) continues costing NBC massive debts to be repaid.
