Tuesday TV Ratings 7/27/21: Tokyo Olympics Hold Steady, Love Island Ticks Up (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: NBC's broadcast of the 'Tokyo Olympics' (3.2) held steady with Monday night's rating and, like clockwork, outperformed the combined rating of every other telecast of the evening. In an incredibly distant second place, CBS's 'Love Island' (0.4) rose a tenth from the previous Tuesday's episode and built from its 'NCIS' repeat lead-in (0.3). A 10pm encore of 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.2) slipped from there. ABC offered up comedy reruns, with 'The Goldbergs' (0.3) benefiting from the local lead-in and 'Black-ish' (0.1) sticking out like a sore thumb at 9:30. 'Home Economics', 'The Conners', and 'To Tell the Truth' all garnered a 0.2 rating. Fox was on-par with the alphabet network with its repeat showings of 'LEGO Masters' (0.2) and 'Mental Samurai' (0.2). The CW went with reruns of 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.1) and 'Superman & Lois' (0.1). 

Finals Update: 2020 Tokyo Olympics (+0.1) and the repeat of Blackish (+0.1) adjusted up. The repeat of Superman & Lois (-0.1) adjusted down.
