Sunday TV Ratings 1/31/21: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Card Sharks Rebound, 60 Minutes Leads (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: With football out of the picture until next week, Sunday night became a desolate wasteland full of repeats and retreads. CBS's '60 Minutes' (0.7) was able to top all other broadcasts but there was less interest in encores of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.4), 'NCIS: New Orleans' (0.3), and 'NCIS' (0.3). Taking advantage of the lack of competition, ABC's 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' (0.5) rose by two-tenths while 'Card Sharks' (0.5) gained three-tenths and jumped to a new season high. A strong 'AFV' encore (0.6) began the night for the alphabet network while a feeble 'Rookie' rerun (0.2) capped things off. NBC went with repeats of 'Weakest Link' (0.3), 'The Wall' (0.4), 'Chicago Med' (0.3), and 'Dateline' (0.3). Fox was roughly on-par with the peacock network with encores of 'Name That Tune' (0.3), 'The Simpsons' (0.3), 'The Great North' (0.3), 'Bob's Burgers' (0.3), and an out-of-timeslot 'Call Me Kat' (0.2). The CW held even across the board with 'Batwoman' (0.2) and 'Charmed' (0.1).

Finalls Update: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (+0.1) and repeats of America's Funniest Home Videos (+0.1), The Rookie (+0.1), NCIS: New Orleans (+0.1), Weakest Link (+0.1) and Call Me Kat (+0.1) adjusted up. Repeats of Name That Tune (-0.1) adjusted down.
