Thursday TV Ratings 10/7/21: Ghosts Starts Decently, Young Sheldon Returns Steady, Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 Sink (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: CBS's new comedy 'Ghosts' (0.56) got off to a respectable start for its 1-hour premiere at 9. The sitcom grew markedly from its 'United States of Al' lead-in and was only a few hundredths away from longtime staples like 'Grey's' and 'SVU'. 'Young Sheldon' (0.70) was flat with last year's debut for its 8pm return while 'Al' (0.49) returned on the lower-end of its spring 2021 delivery. Aging drama 'Bull' (0.35) hit a new series low for its sixth season premiere in the 10pm slot. ABC experienced some troubling declines as 'Station 19' (0.58) fell by two-tenths and 'Grey's Anatomy' (0.64, -0.13) found itself in series low territory. 'Big Sky' (0.32) fell by five-hundredths at 10, shedding a clean 50% of the 'Grey's' audience in the process. On NBC, 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.62) and 'Organized Crime' (0.55) each gave back a tenth. An 'SVU' rerun (0.38) occupied the 8pm timeslot. Fox was absent from the scripted game entirely, instead dominating with its broadcast of the 'Rams v. Seahawks' NFL game (4.17). The CW's 'Coroner' (0.06) lost a hundredth and was followed by the stable series finale of 'The Outpost' (0.03). 

Finals Update: 'NFL: Rams v. Seahawks' (+2.1), 'Station 19' (+0.1), 'Ghosts' (+0.1), 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' (+0.1) and 'Bull' (+0.1) adjusted up.
