Thursday TV Ratings 12/16/21: Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 Rise for Midseason Finales, NFL Rises, Big Sky Steady (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: ABC's 'Station 19' (0.62, +0.07) and 'Grey's Anatomy' (0.61, +0.07) enjoyed some much-needed relief for their midseason finales. Both dramas were up by seven-hundredths and outdid the nasty lows they posted a week prior. In contrast, 10pm drama 'Big Sky' (0.27, -0.03) lost three-hundredths and slipped to its lowest rating to date. CBS had mediocre reruns of 'Young Sheldon' (0.42), 'United States of Al' (0.27), 'Ghosts' (0.29), 'B Positive' (0.24), and 'Bull' (0.22) that demolished NBC's 'Women of Worth' (0.18) and 'Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors' (0.20). Fox's 'Chiefs v. Chargers' NFL game (4.63) was almost nine-tenths above the 'Steelers v. Vikings' game from last Thursday (3.78). The CW got the same rating out of a 'Dogs of the Year' special (0.09) and an original 'Legacies' (0.09, +0.01). 

Finals Update: 'NFL: Chiefs v. Chargers' (+0.1) adjusted up.
