SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Tuesday 5.31.2022 Top 150 Cable Originals & Network Finals UPDATED

 

BROADCAST FINALS

ABC:  HOLEY MOLEY dropped a tenth to 0.37, THE CHASE slipped 0.02 to 0.30, and WHO DO YOU BELIEVE was down 0.05 to 0.18.

CBS:  Reruns at 0.42/0.35/0.31.

NBC:  The season premiere of AMERICA’S GOT TALENT was at 0.76, down two-tenths from the 2021 premiere.  DANCING WITH MYSELF premiered at 0.42.

FOX:  After a rerun of CRIME SCENE KITCHEN at 0.26, a rerun of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was at 0.14.

CW:  SUPERMAN & LOIS aired a new episode for the first time since May 3, and lost 0.04 to 0.12.  TOM SWIFT premiered at 0.06.

TELEMUNDO:  Readers will have noticed that we’re now featuring official national ratings for the Spanish-language broadcast networks.  We can’t claim a lot of familiarity with their programming, but it’s evident that these networks are quite competitive with their English-language counterparts, and particularly strong with the 18-34 demo.

UNIVISION:  Same here, and notably MI FORTUNA ES AMARTE was the #2 show of the night in both 18-34s and 18-49s.
