  • Fox's NASCAR race was largely knocked into primetime due to weather delays. The coverage usually hovered around 0.4 to 0.5.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • ABC did not get much of a crowd for the start of its recap of past Bachelor seasons (0.5/0.5/0.4), though they did at least win the night in adults 18-34 (0.4).
  • NBC's The Titan Games (0.8), The Wall (0.7) and Songland (0.5) all matched last week's final finals (the last two hours later adjusted down after initially showing 0.8/0.8/0.6).

WHAT MATTERS:
  • NBC's dominant duo of America's Got Talent (1.3) and World of Dance (0.9) came down 10%ish from last week's premieres.
  • ABC's The Genetic Detective preliminarily remained at 0.4, getting a little bigger 9/8c lead-in from a news special on the protests (0.6). The ABC night opened with a couple of topical Black-ish repeats (0.6/0.5).
  • The CW's Stargirl (0.2) ended its 0.3 streak in week three, matching the season finale of Legends of Tomorrow (0.2).

Spotted Ratings, Monday 6/1/20


FINALS UPDATE: Iconic: TLC (0.1, -0.2) and Roswell, New Mexico (0.1) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Preliminary ratings may be inflated due to local news preemptions. The Wall (0.8) took over in the 9/8c timeslot after The Titan Games (0.8), while The Baker and the Beauty (0.6/0.5) wrapped up season one with a two-hour finale.

Spotted Ratings, Sunday 5/31/20


FINALS UPDATE: America's Funniest Home Videos (0.6, -0.3), Celebrity Family Feud (0.8, -0.2), Press Your Luck (0.7, -0.3), Match Game (0.6, -0.3), 60 Minutes (0.6), Movie: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (0.5, -0.2), The Titan Games (R) (0.3, -0.3), America's Got Talent (R) (0.4, -0.2), Last Man Standing (R) (0.2), Duncanville (R) (0.2), The Simpsons (R) (0.2, -0.2), Bless the Harts (R) (0.2, -0.2), Bob's Burgers (R) (0.2, -0.2), Family Guy (R) (0.3, -0.2) and Stargirl (R) (0.1) adjusted down.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • Preliminary ratings are likely inflated due to local news preemptions for protest coverage, but on a national level ABC did bring back its Sunday game show lineup with the returns of Celebrity Family Feud (1.0), Press Your Luck (1.0) and Match Game (0.9). These shows would all be even or slightly up year-to-year vs. last year's summer premieres if they could hold on in finals.
