Thursday TV Ratings 3/4/21: Celebrity Wheel of Fortune and The Chase End Down, Superstore Down in Return to 8, Mom, The Unicorn and Clarice Steady Behind Down B Positive (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: The 8-episode run of 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (0.7) ended with a new series low on ABC, down a tenth from last week's broadcast. 'Wheel' initially found itself in strong territory but never rose above the 1.0 threshold past early January. The two-hour finale of 'The Chase' (0.5/0.4) followed right after, with the game show garnering its lowest rating yet at 9 and then hitting another new low at 10. Needless to say, both programs left a particularly dreadful final impression. CBS suffered some minor slippage with 'Young Sheldon' (0.9) and 'B Positive' (0.6) but 'Mom' (0.7), 'The Unicorn' (0.5), and 'Clarice' (0.4) all tied their previous showings. With 'Mr. Mayor' out of the way, NBC's 'Superstore' (0.4) ticked down in its return to the 8pm hour. The workplace sitcom has just 4 episodes left before it leaves the airwaves for good. Later in the night, 'Dateline' (0.4) held even with what its week-ago repeat posted in the slot. Meager reruns of 'Young Rock' (0.2) and 'SVU' (0.3) separated the two originals. Fox was steady as usual with 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.7), 'Call Me Kat' (0.5), and 'Last Man Standing' (0.4). 'Kat' has now posted its 5th-straight 0.5 rating. The CW had encores of 'Walker' (0.1) and 'Legacies' (0.0).

Finals Update: 'B Positive' (+0.1), 'The Unicorn' (+0.1), both episodes of 'The Chase' (+0.1 each), and 'Last Man Standing' (+0.1) adjusted up.
