Saturday TV Ratings 1/22/22: Saturday Night Live Drops, 49ers/Packers NFL Playoff Game Dominates (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Fox's '49ers v. Packers' NFL game (9.93) led the network to a rare Saturday victory and went over 40% above CBS's monster 'Patriots v. Bills' game (7.03) from the week prior. CBS had NFL-inflated reruns of 'The Equalizer' (0.73) and 'SWAT' (0.33) that helped '48 Hours' (0.37, +0.10) pick up a tenth at 10. NBC had feeble repeats of 'The Wall' (0.14), 'Dateline' (0.19), and 'SNL Vintage' (0.23). As a result of the reduced lead-in, the original episode of 'Saturday Night Live' (0.92, -0.10) lost a tenth at 11:30PM. ABC had anemic encores of 'Shark Tank' (0.18/0.20) and 'The Rookie' (0.12). The CW's 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.04) tied its week-ago installment and was yet again bested by a repeat of itself (0.05). Reruns of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.05/0.07) occupied the 8PM hour. 

Finals Update: 'NFL: 49ers v. Packers' (+3.3), '48 Hours' (+0.1), the repeats of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' (+0.1 each), and 'World's Funniest Animals' (+0.1) adjusted up. Repeats of 'The Wall' (-0.1) and 'Dateline NBC' (-0.1) adjusted down.
