Saturday TV Ratings 7/24/21: Olympics Rise from Opening Ceremony, All Other Networks Abysmal (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: After a rough return on Friday, the 'Tokyo Olympics' (2.5) saw some minor relief in day two, up two-tenths from the previous broadcast. Although it remains well below the 'Olympic' ratings from 2016, this is definitely a step in the right direction. CBS took the 2nd place spot but was unsurprisingly leagues below NBC with repeats of 'Magnum PI' (0.1) and '48 Hours' (0.2/0.2). ABC fared even worse as repeats of 'AFV' (0.2), 'Shark Tank' (0.2), and 'The Good Doctor' (0.1) barely managed to register in the 18-49 demographic. Fox was at that same putrid level with its showing of the 'CONCACAF Gold Cup' (0.1). 

Finals Update: The repeat of 48 Hours (+0.1) adjusted up.
