1) “Grey’s Anatomy,” 9 p.m., ABC. For four straight weeks, ABC says, this has been Thursday’s most-watched show … if you stick to ages 18-49 and include three days of delayed viewing. The network’s entire night – “Station 19” at 8 p.m., “A Million Little Things” at 10 – does well with young adults. This “Grey’s” should continue that: During a blizzard, Dr. DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti, shown here in a previous episode) volunteers for a life-threatening task, startling Meredith and his sister Carina.
2) “The Bold Type,” 9 p.m., Freeform. This show pushes for that “Grey’s” audience of young women … especially this week. One storyline involves pain and odor in a female body part; another involves using a sex toy. Both are discussed much more frankly than viewers (or readers) are used to. Some people – many, perhaps – will be upset. The storylines do pay off well, however, in the final minutes.
3) “Deputy,” 9 p.m., Fox. And yes, there’s also a 9 p.m. drama for guys. Tonight, there are home invasions in an upscale neighborhood. That becomes high-profile because of the upcoming sheriff election. Bill (appointed to the job) isn’t sure if he’ll run; one of his aides is already running. It’s an interesting story, but breaks come easily and “Deputy,” as usual, has the subtlety of a sledge hammer.
4) “Grown-ish” and “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay,” 8 and 8:30 p.m., Freeform. After a great episode last week, tonight’s “Okay” is merely … well, okay. It mostly ignores last week’s big deal – Matilda, who is autistic, got into the prestigious Juilliard school. Instead, it spends way too much time on the question of why Josh sometimes won’t reply to his boyfriend’s “I love you.” That follows a fairly good “Grown-ish,” with Jazz and Zoey each feeling life tug them in two directions.
5) “Will & Grace,,” 9 p.m., NBC. Despite all the dramas, Thursday is still comedy time. Tonight, Joel McHale plays Karen’s new boyfriend … whom Will and Grace instantly suspect. CBS has some fairly good reruns: On “Young Sheldon” at 8 p.m., a college tries to recruit Sheldon by offering his dad a coaching job; on “Mom” at 9, Bonnie is caught in the middle of a fight between Christy and Adam.
