Young Sheldon was also improved, netting a 2.1 rating in the key demo, while back-to-back episodes of Mom earned a 1.5 and 1.3 rating. S.W.A.T. came in with a 0.9 rating in the key demo.
Grey's Anatomy was also improved over on ABC, rising to a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49. The lead-in did not help spinoff Station 19, down to a 0.9 rating in the key demo before Quantico (0.5 adults). NBC put out the lone repeat of the night, Law & Order: SVU, before two episodes of Chicago Fire (0.9 adults).
Fox put out a new Gotham (0.7 adults) and a lifted Showtime at the Apollo (0.6 adults). Supernatural jumped on The CW, earning a 0.6 rating in the key demo, while Arrow came in with a 0.4.
