Ratings Breakdown:
With two-thirds of CBS’ line-up in repeats, ABC dominated the household overnights with its drama combination of “Grey’s Anatomy” (#1: 5.1 rating/9 share at 8 p.m.), “Station 19” (#2: 3.7/ 6 at 9 p.m.) and legal drama “For the People” (#3: 2.5/ 5 at 10 p.m.). Although chances of a third season for “Station 19” is likely, there is no reason to believe sophomore “For the People” will return.
On CBS, the network sandwiched two episodes of recent sitcom entry “Fam” (8:30 p.m.: #2: 3.8/ 7; 9:30 p.m.: #2: 3.1/ 5 at 9:30 p.m.) in between encore telecasts of “The Big Bang Theory” (#1: 5.2/ 9 at 8 p.m.) and “Young Sheldon” (#1: 3.8/ 7 at 9 p.m.).
