Wednesday TV Ratings 4/7/21: Home Economics Has OK Start, Kung Fu Solid for The CW, The Goldbergs and The Conners Rise (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC unveiled new comedy 'Home Economics' (0.5) at 8:30 in rather passable fashion. This rating was slightly above the week-ago 'American Housewife' finale (0.47) but a good bit behind its stable 'Goldbergs' lead-in (0.6) and rising 'Conners' lead-out (0.6/0.6). At 10, 'A Million Little Things' (0.4) made a seamless transition to Wednesday nights, tying its latest Thursday episode. NBC had a rough evening as 'Chicago Fire' (0.7) and 'Chicago PD' (0.7) each took alarming three-tenth dips. In comparison, 8pm anchor 'Chicago Med' (0.8) only lost a tenth. 'The Masked Singer' (1.1) ticked down on Fox but will likely get that tenth back after finals. 'Game of Talents' (0.6) was frozen at last week's number. CBS's 'Tough as Nails' (0.4) tied its previous installment, but 'SEAL Team' (0.4) and 'SWAT' (0.4) lost one-tenth and two-tenths respectively. On the CW, the series premiere of 'Kung Fu' (0.2) had a fairly respectable start by the network's standards. That momentum helped 'Nancy Drew' (0.1) rise from last week's horrid 0.0 preliminary rating.

Finals Update: 'The Goldbergs' (+0.1), 'Home Economics' (+0.1), both episodes of 'The Conners' (+0.1, +0.1), 'Chicago Fire' (+0.1), and 'Chicago PD' (+0.1) adjusted up.
