Sunday TV Ratings 5/24/20: Titanic Sinks, Little Big Shots Ends on New Low, NASCAR Leads Silent Night (UPDATED)

The Sunday before Memorial Day wasn't blessed with any strong ratings, with every show multiple tenths under the league average.

As always, Fox aired a NASCAR race. The Coca-Cola 600 was down about a tenth year-to-year, the only thing about this night that could be described as "impressive." The race beat out the competition and gave Fox a nightly win by about two tenths.

ABC's game show repeats failed to dazzle in the way they so often do, though they weren't a far cry off last year's pre-Memorial Day results. Celebrity Family Feud had a decent-by-this-night's-standards 0.5, while Press Your Luck and Match Game, both new to the Sunday lineup after airing on Wednesdays last year, both attracted 0.4s. An AFV repeat at 7 received 0.5.

CBS aired Titanic, the iconic Oscar-winning film, for all four hours of primetime, with a rare 60 Minutes preemption at 7. It's hard to imagine 60 Minutes performing worse than Titanic, which hit a ratings iceberg with only a 0.4. At the very least, it grew during the night and wasn't a far cry from Mission: Impossible last week.

NBC said goodbye (certainly forever) to Little Big Shots. It hit a series low for the two episodes it aired. The 7 PM showing drew a pitiful 0.2, hitting an even more pitiful 0.1 in the second half. The 8 PM showing did a bit "better" with 0.2s in both halves. That's something, I guess. The Wall aired its last episodes before moving to Monday. Scheduling for this show has been absolutely atrocious, with it now having aired in all four Sunday hours within its ten-episode run. That certainly didn't help it any in the ratings. It drew 0.3 in both hours, with a 0.2 for the first half of its first episode. We'll see how it transfers to Monday but things don't look terribly promising from here.

The CW had repeats, both at 0.1.
Finals Update: The Coca-Cola 600 (-0.1) and the 9 PM showing of The Wall (-0.1) adjusted down.
