Thursday TV Ratings 1/28/21: The Unicorn Hits New Low Behind Repeats, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune and The Chase Decline, Mr. Mayor Rises (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC's Thursday-night lead was more subdued than usual as 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (0.8) and 'The Chase' (0.6) both shed a tenth from last week. 'The Hustler' (0.5) clung to its week-ago rating in the 10pm slot. NBC was steady with 'Mr. Mayor' (0.5) and 'Superstore' (0.4) but 'Dateline' (0.5) actually rose two-tenths despite its 'SVU' lead-in (0.4) being in repeat-mode. Fox was flat with a sturdy 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.7), a solid 'Call Me Kat' (0.6), and a struggling 'Last Man Standing' (0.4). On CBS, 'The Unicorn' (0.3) crashed to a new low leading out of a 'Mom' repeat (0.3). 'Young Sheldon' encores (0.5/0.4) bested the Walton Goggins comedy while 'Star Trek: Discovery' (0.2) remained anemic at 10. The CW's 'Walker' (0.3) inched down in week 2 while 'Legacies' (0.2) held even.

Finals Update: The Chase (+0.1), Mr. Mayor (+0.1),  The Unicorn (+0.1), and repeats of Law & Order: SVU (+0.1), Young Sheldon at 8:30 (+0.1) and Mom (+0.1) adjusted up.
