Sunday TV Ratings 6/6/21: Kennedy Center Honors Low, Celebrity Family Feud Returns Near Previous Season High, To Tell The Truth Lower (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC's 'Celebrity Family Feud' (0.8) debuted in stellar shape, matching its summer 2020 start in the 18-49 demo and outpacing it in total viewers (5.46 mil. vs. 4.63 mil.). In the 9pm slot, 'The Chase' (0.6) inched up from its last episode (0.47 on 3/4/21) and was on-par with the second-half of its first season. Meanwhile, 'To Tell the Truth' (0.4) had a rough time on premiere night, tying its series low and going below the majority of its winter 2021 episodes. Much of that likely has to do with the game show moving from 8pm to a less desirable 10pm slot. At 7, a repeat of 'AFV' (0.7) posted a surprisingly strong result. After taking the entirety of 2020 off, CBS's broadcast of the 'Kennedy Center Honors' (0.3) came in 50% below the previous ceremony from December 2019 (0.6). A repeat of '60 Minutes' (0.4) preceded the festivities while an encore of 'NCIS: New Orleans' (0.2) occupied the 10pm hour. NBC got decent mileage out of the 'US Championship Gymnastics' (0.4) and a repeat of 'America's Got Talent' (0.3). Fox brought back 'The Moodys' (0.2/0.2) after putting it on a month-long hiatus, the comedy lost a tenth and dropped to a new low. Earlier in the night, 'Bless the Harts' (0.2) aired its penultimate episode, with encores of 'Duncanville' (0.2), 'The Simpsons' (0.3), and 'The Great North' (0.2) surrounding the originals. 'Legends of Tomorrow' (0.1) and 'Batwoman' (0.1) were both flat on the CW.

Finals Update: The premiere of 'Celebrity Family Feud' (0.9, +0.1), '60 Minutes' (0.5, +0.1), a repeat of 'America's Got Talent' (0.4, +0.1), and 'The Kennedy Center Honors' (0.4, +0.1) adjusted up. The second episode of 'The Moodys' (0.1, -0.1) adjusted down.
