Thursday TV Ratings 2/24/22: Law & Order Premieres Solidly and Boosts SVU, Ghosts and Young Sheldon Return Down, Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy Rise After Hiatuses (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Though it fell a bit short of being the highest-rated program of the night, the 'Law & Order' revival (0.74) got off to a stellar start on NBC. That positive momentum seemed to help spinoff dramas 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.68, +0.05) and 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' (0.52, +0.03) grow by five-hundredths and three-hundredths respectively. ABC had a phenomenal evening as 'Station 19' (0.75, +0.13) and 'Grey's Anatomy' (0.78, +0.17) soared for their first episodes since December. This was the highest 'Station' rating since its September 2021 premiere and marked a new season high for 'Grey's. In comparison, 'Big Sky' (0.30, +0.03) only managed to scrape together a few extra ticks at 10. After being off for several weeks, 'Young Sheldon' (0.63, -0.10), 'United States of Al' (0.47, -0.07), 'Ghosts' (0.55, -0.13), and 'B Positive' (0.44, -0.02) all dropped by varying degrees on CBS. At 10, canceled drama 'Bull' (0.41, +0.03) was the only show of the lineup to rise. Over on Fox, 'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer' (0.30, -0.01) and 'Call Me Kat' (0.25, -0.05) declined as newbie 'Pivoting' (0.19, +0.01) rose by a single hundredth. Leading out of a rerun of 'Walker' (0.06), The CW's 'Legacies' (0.07, -0.02) shed two-hundredths. 

Finals Update: 'Station 19' (+0.1), 'United States of Al' (+0.1), 'Grey's Anatomy' (+0.1), 'Ghosts' (+0.1), and 'Call Me Kat' (+0.1) adjusted up.
