Thursday TV Ratings 3/24/22: March Madness Hits New 2022 High, Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy Tick Back Up, Call Me Kat Slips (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: CBS got a monster rating out of the 'AR v. Gonzaga' NCAA Tournament (1.86) and broke the 2.0 threshold for the first time this month with an even bulkier 'TX Tech v. Duke' match-up (2.17). Though overshadowed by March Madness, ABC dramas 'Station 19' (0.61, +0.07), 'Grey's Anatomy' (0.64, +0.13), and 'Big Sky' (0.33, +0.08) made significant gains after sinking to series lows the week prior. Fox's 'MasterChef Junior' (0.40, +0.01) rose by a single hundredth from last week's disappointing return, and 'Welcome To Flatch' (0.20) held flat at its miserable premiere rating. In-between those two, 'Call Me Kat' (0.33, -0.03) declined by three-hundredths on a week-to-week basis. NBC had a trio of repeats with 'Law & Order' (0.32), 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.43), and 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' (0.31). The CW had sluggish encores of 'Walker' (0.05) and 'Legacies' (0.02).

Finals Update: 'NCAA Tournament: Texas Tech v. Duke' (+0.3) adjusted up. 'NCAA Tournament: Arkansas v. Gonzaga' (-0.2) adjusted down.
