Sunday TV Ratings 1/9/22: Pivoting Has Weak Start Behind Decent Call Me Kat Return, The Equalizer, Supermarket Sweep and The Rookie All See Gains (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Fox's 'Call Me Kat' (1.22) began its second season the same way as its first, airing on a Sunday night behind 'NFL Overrun' (4.61) and 'The OT' (3.05). 'Kat' was down a light 11% from its year-ago premiere (1.37), but its 'OT' lead-in was about 16% higher than it was in 2021 (2.62). While 'Kat' seemed fairly healthy on arrival, viewers quickly fled when new sitcom 'Pivoting' (0.60) debuted at 8:30. The freshman comedy lost more than 50% of the 'Kat' rating and was below every football-boosted 'Great North' episode from fall 2021. In the 9PM hour, 'Bob's Burgers' (0.50, -0.08) and 'Family Guy' (0.48, -0.07) were both down close to a tenth from their last installments. With the help of their own 'NFL Overrun' (3.36), '60 Minutes' (1.13, +0.58), 'The Equalizer' (0.68, +0.14) and 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.52, +0.05) rose by varying degrees on CBS. The boost faded away by 10PM as drama 'SWAT' (0.42) was unable to rise and could only match what it garnered a week prior. ABC had no football help in sight but that didn't stop 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (0.62, +0.11), 'Supermarket Sweep' (0.55, +0.14), and 'The Rookie' (0.40, +0.08) from surging to new season highs. Despite the impressive gains from 8-11, 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.49, -0.07) shed seven-hundredths in the 7PM timeslot. NBC's 'Chargers v. Raiders' NFL game (4.85) dipped by 3% from the week-ago 'Vikings v. Packers' match-up (5.00). At 7, 'Football Night in America' (1.70) lost five-tenths from its previous outing. 'Legends of the Hidden Temple' (0.04, -0.01) ticked down on the CW and was followed by a rerun of 'Superman & Lois' (0.02). 

Finals Update: 'NFL on Fox' (+1.8), 'NFL Overrun' on CBS (+0.8), 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (+0.1), 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (+0.1), 'Supermarket Sweep' (+0.1), 'The Equalizer' (+0.1), 'NFL: Chargers v. Raiders' (+0.8), 'The OT' (+0.3), 'Call Me Kat' (+0.3), and 'Family Guy' (+0.1) adjusted up. '60 Minutes' (-0.2) adjusted down.
