Sunday TV Ratings 8/22/21: To Tell the Truth and The Chase Rise After Break, Big Brother Stays on Top (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: After close to a month without airing new episodes, ABC's 'The Chase' (0.5) and 'To Tell the Truth' (0.5) were both up two-tenths when compared to their last originals from July. 'Celebrity Family Feud' (0.6) was flat at 8 while the 7pm 'AFV' encore (0.5) was up a tick. CBS's '60 Minutes' (0.6) rose markedly from last week (0.45), but 'Big Brother' (1.0) held steady right after. The network's momentum collapsed from there as repeats of 'Equalizer' (0.3) and 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.2) failed to benefit from the strong lead-in. NBC had reruns of 'Family Game Fight!' (0.2) and 'America's Got Talent' (0.3/0.2) that were marginally higher than Fox's mostly animated encores (0.1/0.2/0.2/0.2/0.2). The CW saw no movement in either direction as 'Legends of Tomorrow' (0.1), 'Wellington Paranormal' (0.0), and the 'Dead Pixels' finale (0.0) all matched what they garnered seven days prior. 

Finals Update: Big Brother (+0.1), The Chase (+0.1), and the repeat of America's Got Talent (+0.1) adjusted up. The repeat of 60 Minutes (-0.2) adjusted down.
