Thursday TV Ratings 11/12/20: Grey’s Anatomy and SVU Return Down, Station 19 Rises from Finale, The Unicorn Premiere Hits Series Low (UPDATED)


Preliminary Analysis: Although Fox remained on top with the 'Colts v Titains' NFL game (2.2), ABC brought back its medical drama lineup in stellar fashion. The season premiere of 'Station 19' (1.1) was only a tenth behind where the series began in January 2020 (1.2). Lead-out 'Grey's Anatomy' (1.3) was two-tenths below last fall's start (1.5) but essentially on-par with its April 2020 finale (1.4). On CBS, 'Young Sheldon' (0.8) gained a tenth while episode two of new sitcom 'B Positive' (0.5) lost one. 'Positive' looks a good bit worse than last week but still remains in passable territory. 'Mom' (0.6) held even at 9pm but the season two premiere of 'The Unicorn' (0.4) went two-tenths below its previous series low. 'Star Trek: Discovery' (0.3) inched up at the end of the lineup. NBC's 'Superstore' (0.5) held steady while the 22nd premiere of 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.6) was a tenth below last year's (0.7) at 9pm. The CW was once more steady across the board with 'Supernatural' (0.3) and 'The Outpost' (0.1).

Finals Update: Station 19 (+0.1) and NFL: Colts v. Titans (+1.3) adjusted up.
