With most scripted fare in reruns on Thursday's primetime broadcast schedule, reality game shows took over the night, as well as NBC's annual Red Nose Day celebration. In total viewers, ABC's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? took the lead with nearly 6 million viewers thanks to a rerun of CBS' Young Sheldon close behind with 5.46 million viewers.

However, in the 18-49 demographic, a .8 rating went to Millionaire, NBC's Red Nose Day special Celebrity Escape Room, and the season premiere of ABC's Holey Moley for a three way tie. In the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's To Tell The Truth won the hour in both the demo and total viewers.
