Saturday TV Ratings 2/20/21: Saturday Night Live Holds Steady, Weakest Link Repeat Tops NBA (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: With host Regé-Jean Page and musical guest Bad Bunny, 'Saturday Night Live' posted a 1.20 A18-49 rating at 11:30, matching last week's installment in the process. Repeats of 'Ellen's Game of Games' (0.29), 'Weakest Link' (0.34), and 'SNL Vintage' (0.35) led into the main attraction. ABC's 'Heat v. Lakers' NBA game (0.59) was about a tenth lower than the week-ago 'Nets v. Warriors' one (0.70) but was still the highest-rated broadcast in primetime. The game led out of an 8pm 'NBA Countdown special (0.28). CBS went with reruns of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.26) and '48 Hours' (0.27) that led into an original '48 Hours' (0.36) at 10. Fox was once more uncompetitive with encores of '9-1-1' (0.13) and 'Name That Tune' (0.20). 

Finals Update: SNL Vintage (+0.1), 48 Hours (+0.1), NBA: Heat v. Lakers (+0.2) and repeats of NCIS: Los Angeles (+0.1) and 48 Hours (+0.1) adjusted up. Repeats of Ellen's Game of Games (+0.1) and Weakest Link (-0.2) adjusted down.
