Wednesday TV Ratings 2/24/21: American Housewife Rises for 100th Episode, Name That Tune Stable for 8 PM airing, For Life Ends Steady (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: The ABC Wednesday lineup was entirely in originals for the first time in a few weeks, with bottom-of-the-hour sitcoms 'American Housewife' (0.6) and 'Call Your Mother' (0.5) showing the most promise. 'Housewife' was up a tenth from its last episode while 'Call Your Mother' rose by two-tenths to its highest rating since the premiere (0.53). 'The Goldbergs' (0.6) and 'The Conners' (0.6) remained flat, as did the season finale of 'For Life' (0.3) at 10. With 'The Masked Dancer' out of the picture, Fox went with a double-pump of 'Name That Tune' (0.5/0.6). The musical game-show had its strongest performance since January for the 9pm episode. On CBS, 'Tough As Nails' (0.5) matched its previous installment and led into low-rated encores of 'SEAL Team' (0.3) and 'SWAT' (0.2). NBC's 'One Chicago' trio (0.5/0.5/0.4) was in repeat-mode as well. The CW got a little weaker as 'Riverdale' (0.1) lost a tenth at 8, 'Nancy Drew' was frozen at 0.1 once more. 

Finals Update: The Goldbergs (+0.1), the repeat of SWAT (+0.1) and Riverdale (+0.1) adjusted up.
