Ratings Roundup for the Week of March 21, 2021


CBS announced a couple more renewals last week, FBI and FBI: Most Wanted were both given the green light for another season. The network also announced another FBI spinoff for next season, FBI: International. It seems Dick Wolf is planning to take over another network. Between the FBI shows and the various NCIS shows, there isn't going to be much room left on the schedule for other programs at this rate. The Friday dramas made a rare March appearance last week, they are usually preempted for NCAA basketball. Magnum PI was down a tenth. Blue Bloods was up a tenth, and MacGyver was even with its last numbers a few weeks ago.

ABC wrapped To Tell The Truth last week. Ratings for the game show have been stable all season, and it should be renewed. Black-ish and Mixed-ish returned after a few weeks break. Both were even with their last new episodes, but those numbers are low. They may squeak another year, but don't be surprised if the network announces next season will be the last for both shows if they aren't cancelled outright in May. Grey's Anatomy lost a tenth, Station 19 was even.

NBC announced last week that Mr Mayor would be back for a second season. The Peacock also wrapped Superstore after six seasons. Debris held its rating number but shed another 500,000 viewers. Its chances for a second season are fading. Young Rock and Kenan were even and will probably be renewed. Good Girls remains the lowest-rated scripted program on the network. It's past the magic season three now, its chances for renewal are low.

FOX wrapped the first season of Call Me Kat last week. The show has performed well and should be renewed. Last Man Standing lost a tenth. The Great North and Bless the Harts are in the sub-million viewer range, the network may be rethinking some of its plans for the Sunday animation block. Cherries Wild as a lead-in isn't helping matters.

The CW had a quiet week. Superman & Lois was up a tenth. The network lost 500,000 viewers preempting Walker for another Harry and Meghan special. New episodes of Whose Line Is It, Anyway and Penn & Teller Fool Us each lost 100,000 viewers from the previous week. Both shows usually air in the summer, so renewal decisions have been delayed, however, both should be back for another season.
