Thursday TV Ratings 10/28/21: Toy Story of Terror! and Toy Story 4 Modest on ABC, Young Sheldon and United States of Al Rise, The Blacklist Dips (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: CBS's comedy block made notable gains throughout the evening, with 'Young Sheldon' (0.71, +0.08) and 'United States of Al' (0.53, +0.09) each climbing by nearly a full tenth.  'Ghosts' (0.57, +0.04) and 'B Positive' (0.43, +0.03) rose by a few hundredths in the 9pm hour, and drama 'Bull' (0.31) made no movement in either direction at 10. The news was no as bright on NBC as 'The Blacklist' (0.30, -0.09) dropped by a tenth from last week's lackluster return. A rerun of 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.26) capped off a disappointing night for the peacock network. Fox won big with its 'Packers v. Cardinals' NFL broadcast (5.59), the telecast blew the week-ago 'Broncos v. Browns' game (3.72) out of the water. ABC's showing of Halloween special 'Toy Story of Terror!' (0.41) went close to 60% below the 1.0 it garnered the last time it aired over two years ago (10/22/19). Afterwards, the broadcast debut of the 2019 sequel 'Toy Story 4' (0.35) was met with little fanfare and more than half that audience had departed by the time the 10:30pm encore of 'The Wonder Years' (0.17) rolled around. Over on the CW, 'Walker' (0.11) returned from a hiatus that lasted more than two months and shed a hundredth from its last showing. 'Legacies' (0.07) was down by two-hundredths from the week prior. 

Finals Update: 'Ghosts' (+0.1) and 'Toy Story 4' (+0.1) adjusted up.
