TV Ratings: Young Sheldon Leads Slow Night, Deputy Slips Again

at .

It was a slow night for the broadcast networks on Thursday, with Young Sheldon holding a comfortable lead over everything else. 

The hit series had 8.8 million total viewers and a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49. 

Even though the series is down considerably, it is still a solid option for CBS. 

Learning To Listen - Young Sheldon

Are you still watching, or did you quit when The Big Bang Theory concluded?

Meanwhile, The Unicorn  (5.7 million/0.6 rating) and Carol's Second Act (5 million/0.6 rating) were both steady, but retention for the former out of Young Sheldon was not great.

Bonnie Sitting in Therapy - Mom Season 7 Episode 8

Mom (6.3 million/0.7 rating) took a hit, while EVIL (3.3 million/0.5 rating) bounced back from last week's series lows with a WTF installment. 

Are you digging this CBS horror?

Over on The CW, Supernatural returned from hiatus on a steady note, with 1.2 million viewers and a 0.3 rating. 

Sebastian Plays Ball - Legacies Season 2 Episode 9

Were you a fan of all the twists? 

Legacies Season 2 Episode 9 followed with 723,000 viewers and a 0.2 rating. Did you forget the show was back?

Over on NBC, Perfect Harmony eyed new lows with 1.3 million viewers and a 0.3 rating. Don't expect this show to get a renewal. 

Superstore (2.7 million/0.6 rating) tied its season low in the demo, which is a shame because it was a decent episode. 

Dina's Dad - Superstore Season 5 Episode 12

The Good Place (1.9 million/0.5 rating) slumped to season lows, while Will & Grace (2.1 million/0.4 rating) tied its lowest ratings of the season. 

Fox's Last Man Standing (4.8 million/0.8 rating) was steady with another double bill, proving that viewers will watch this show whenever it airs.

Are you on board with the new season, or is it a step down in quality?

Let's Call Him Trigger - Deputy Season 1 Episode 3

Deputy (3.6 million/0.6 rating) dipped for the second straight week. Unfortunately, there is a very fine line between renewal and cancellation at FOX, and the show is falling into the latter. 

Deputy Season 1 Episode 1 had 4.75 million viewers and a 0.76 rating. With a week of DVR factored in, it swelled to 7.3 million viewers and a 1.2 rating. 

The show would really need to hold up on the DVR front to be considered for a renewal.
