Thursday TV Ratings 11/18/21: Young Sheldon, Ghosts and NFL Hold Steady, Grey’s Anatomy Ticks Down (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Fox's Thursday dominance remained intact as their 'Patriots v. Falcons' NFL game (3.72, +0.10) went a solid tenth higher the week-ago 'Ravens v. Dolphins' match-up (3.62). In a very distant second place, CBS's 'Young Sheldon' (0.73, +0.04) picked up four-hundredths in the lead-off position. Afterwards, 'United States of Al' (0.49, +0.06), newbie 'Ghosts' (0.55, +0.05) and sophomore sitcom 'B Positive' (0.45, +0.07) all made slightly larger gains than 'Sheldon'. An encore of 'Bull' (0.27) capped off the evening for the Tiffany network. Over on ABC, 'Station 19' (0.68, +0.04) managed to rebound a bit, but 'Grey's Anatomy' (0.61, -0.09) and 'Big Sky' (0.30, -0.04) went in the opposite direction. 'Grey's Anatomy' tied its series low while 'Big Sky' created a new one. NBC's 'The Blacklist' (0.32, +0.03) rose by a couple ticks and led into reruns of 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.29) and 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' (0.27). On the CW, 'Walker' (0.10, -0.02) and 'Legacies' (0.09, -0.03) both lost some ground.

Finals Update: 'NFL: Patriots v. Falcons' (+1.6), 'Station 19' (+0.1), 'Ghosts' (+0.1), and 'B Positive' (+0.1) adjusted up.
