The fall finales for ABC Thursday dramas “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Station 19” and “Big Sky” were no match for the NFL on Fox Thursday night, according to Nielsen’s time-zone adjusted data. But neither was any other primetime TV program.

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Los Angeles Chargers in overtime, 34-28. The game had huge implications for the AFC West standings, and the AFC playoff picture overall.

Fox was first in ratings with a 4.1 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 16.3 million. Those numbers have been adjusted for the different time zones and count both the Chiefs-Chargers game and it pre-kickoff show.

ABC was second in ratings with a 0.5 and in total viewers with 3.8 million. At 8, the “Station 19” midseason finale received a 0.6 and 4.7 million viewers. “Grey’s Anatomy” concluded its fall run at 9 with a 0.6 and 4.2 million viewers. At 10, “Big Sky’s” final episode before winter hiatus had a 0.2 and 2.5 million viewers.

CBS was third in ratings with a 0.3 and in total viewers with 3.1 million. The network aired only repeats.

NBC was fourth in ratings with a 0.2 and in total viewers with 1.7 million. At 8, the “L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth” special managed a 0.2 and 1.3 million viewers. A re-broadcast of the 2015 movie “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” from 9-11 closed the night with a 0.2 and 1.8 million viewers.

The CW was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in total viewers with 493,000. At 8, the “Dogs of the Year” special settled for a 0.1 and 611,000 viewers. A new episode of “Legacies” at 9, which featured the exit of series regular Kaylee Bryant, ended the block with a 0.1 and 374,000 viewers.
