Thursday TV Ratings 4/16/20: Mom Ends Down, In The Dark Returns Low, Disney Special Massive (UPDATED)

In recent years, ABC has seen massive Nielsen success for event broadcasts such as 'The Little Mermaid Live!' (2.6) and 'Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time' (2.4). 'Disney Family Singalong' (2.6) turned out to be no different, posting a colossal rating that put any scripted program on the alphabet network to shame. That lead-in juice helped 'Station 19' (1.3) hold even at its season high in its move from 8pm to 9pm. 'How To Get Away with Murder' (0.6) was steady at 10 and remained a good bit above its dreadful fall numbers.

The only network that seemed visibly affected by the Disney special was CBS as 'Young Sheldon' (1.0) lost three-tenths from its last original. 'Man With a Plan' (0.7) held onto last week's number at 8:30 but 'Mom' (0.8) lost two-tenths for its 9pm finale. Newbie 'Broke' (0.7) continued to look fairly promising at 9:30, steady with last week. 'Tommy' (0.5) looked a little less impressive at 10, down a tick from its high point.

NBC's lineup was resilient against the 'Singalong' with a repeat of 'Superstore' (0.6) actually performing a tenth better than last week at 8pm, matching a few first-run episodes. Lead-outs 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' (0.6) and 'Will & Grace' (0.6) were even while the season (series?) finale of 'Indebted' (0.4) gained a precious tenth at 9:30. 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.7) rounded out the night up a notch.

'Last Man Standing' (0.6) lost a tenth on FOX and led into another round of repeats (0.5/0.4). The CW had a helping of 0.1s with 'Katy Keene' and the season two premiere of 'In The Dark'.

Finals Update: Station 19 (-0.1) and the repeat of Superstore (-0.1) adjusted down.
