Thursday TV Ratings 3/11/21: Grey’s Anatomy Slips Below 1.0 for the First Time, Young Sheldon, Superstore & Call Me Kat Among Many Shows Down Behind President Biden Address (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: In theory, airing an address by President Biden in the 8pm slot should give the programs after it a sizable boost in the ratings. That idea didn't hold any water last night as most shows struggled to keep it together. ABC led the way with the returns of 'Station 19' (0.8), 'Grey's Anatomy' (0.8), and 'A Million Little Things' (0.4). When compared to their winter finales, 'Little Things' was down by one-tenth, 'Station' down by two, and 'Grey's' down by three. CBS's sitcom block also had a rough time as 'Young Sheldon' (0.7) and 'Mom' (0.5) each shed two-tenths. In-between the two, 'B Positive' (0.6) only dropped by one. 'Clarice' (0.3) found itself hitting a new low in the 10pm hour. 

On NBC, 'Superstore' (0.3) fell into disastrous territory, posting its lowest rating yet. A repeat of 'SVU' (0.3) and an abysmal 'Dateline' original (0.2) followed suit. Over on Fox, 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.6) and 'Call Me Kat' (0.4) each inched down, but 'Last Man Standing' (0.5) actually managed to rise. 'Last Man' was the only show on one of the big 4 networks to make any significant gain, garnering its strongest rating since early January. Unaffected by political matters as usual, The CW's 'Walker' (0.3) rose a tenth while 'Legacies' (0.1) was flat. The Biden address itself scored a 0.8 rating on ABC and CBS, putting the two networks in a virtual tie. NBC and Fox also matched each other by posting identical 0.5 ratings. 

Finals Update: ABC's President Biden Address (+0.1), Grey's Anatomy (+0.1), Clarice (+0.1), Superstore (+0.1) and Dateline NBC (+0.1) adjusted up. Last Man Standing (-0.1) adjusted down.
