Ratings Roundup for the Week of March 14, 2021


ABC wrapped the latest season of The Bachelor last week. The show was up three tenths from its last episode, but down almost a whole rating point from its last finale. A Million Little Things and Grey's Anatomy were up a tenth. Station 19 was down a tenth. All three should be renewed.

CBS wrapped the second season of  The Unicorn last week with back-to-back episodes. It doesn't look good for the show getting renewed. Numbers have been flat all season, and the network chose to surround the final two episodes with reruns of Young Sheldon and Clarice. Not a good sign. The Grammy Awards was the latest awards show to bottom out, losing more than half its audience from last year. NCIS, FBI and FBI: Most Wanted all gained a tenth.

NBC saw the return of Young Rock and Kenan last week. Young Rock was down two tenths from its last new episode, Kenan was even. For fans of Debris, the good news is the ratings appear to have settled. The bad news is they have settled low. Its future is going to depend on what the Peacock has in the pipe for the fall season.

FOX had a quiet week last week. Most of its scripted dramas were off, only a rerun of 9-1-1 made the schedule. Call Me Kat bounced up a couple of tenths, chances are it will be renewed. The Simpsons was up a tenth while the rest of the Sunday animated shows were all even.

The CW execs will take the ratings horse race that is Walker, Superman & Lois, and The Flash. Walker topped the chart for both ratings and viewers last week. Superman & Lois and The Flash each lost a rating tenth, but held their viewer numbers.

No renewals or cancellations last week, but expect networks to start announcing more renewals in the coming weeks. Upfronts are about eight weeks away and most decisions have already been made as to which programs will be back and which ones will disappear into TV history. How are your favorites doing?
