Thursday TV Ratings 4/22/21: Hell’s Kitchen Finale and Greys Anatomy Lead, Mom Ties Young Sheldon, Rebel and SVU Drop (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: Fox's 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.8) wrapped up its robust 19th season in phenomenal shape, tying its season high and matching 'Grey's' (0.8) for the top spot of the night. The Gordon Ramsay staple has always been a useful utility player, but it seems that the series has managed to cross over into legitimate "hit" territory this year. Following the cooking-show finale, 'Last Man Standing' (0.5) and 'The Moody's' (0.3) both gained a tenth. 'Moody's' will not be returning in this slot, with puppet comedy 'Let's Be Real' taking over next week. ABC was in complete freefall mode as 'Station 19' (0.7), 'Grey's Anatomy' (0.8), and 'Rebel' (0.4) all lost a tenth. CBS's 'Young Sheldon' (0.6) and 'United States of AI' (0.5) were down two-tenths and a tenth respectively. 9pm comedies 'Mom' (0.6) and 'B Positive' (0.5) held even, and a repeat of 'Clarice' (0.2) tanked the 10pm slot as usual. On NBC, 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.7) slipped by two-tenths while 'Organized Crime' (0.6) only lost one-tenth. 8pm drama 'Manifest' posted its third-straight 0.5 rating. The CW aired the 2019 film '2040' (0.1), likely previewing how Nielsen ratings will look like in that particular year. 

Finals Update: Hell's Kitchen (+0.1), Grey's Anatomy (+0.1), Young Sheldon (+0.1), United States of Al (+0.1) and Law & Order: SVU (+0.1) adjusted up.
