Thursday TV Ratings 3/7/24: State of the Union Rises from 2023, Young Sheldon and Ghosts Slip (Final Ratings w/Analysis)

Ratings Analysis: President Biden's State of the Union Address took over primetime, and the ratings were generally higher than they were in 2023. NBC's coverage (0.69 rating/4.47 million viewers) led the way in the Adults 18-49 demographic, but ABC (0.68 rating/5.24 million viewers) had the peacock network beat in terms of total viewership, despite being a hair below them in the demo. CBS (0.49 rating/4.09 million viewers) took a distant fourth, while Fox (0.30 rating/1.77 million viewers) was unsurprisingly in last place. For the 10:30 p.m. Republican Response, it was ABC (0.36 rating/3.36 million viewers) that took the top spot, beating NBC (0.30 rating/2.63 million viewers) in both the demo and viewership. CBS (0.26 rating/2.65 million viewers) pulled slightly ahead of NBC in viewership but was dead-last in the demo. In the 8 p.m. hour, CBS comedies Young Sheldon (0.50, -0.02) and Ghosts (0.48, -0.03) dipped slightly, but Next Level Chef (0.36, +0.04) grew on Fox. ABC had a strong rerun of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (0.38), while NBC re-ran Law & Order (0.22). Son of a Critch (0.05, 0.00) and Children Ruin Everything (0.04, 0.00) were stable on the CW.
