Saturday TV Ratings 1/29/22: Saturday Night Live Ties Series Low, Great Chocolate Showdown Solid By CW Standards, NBA Tops Primetime


Ratings Analysis: William Dafoe and Katy Perry made their way to 30 Rockefeller Plaza but could not stop 'Saturday Night Live' (0.82, -0.10) from losing a tenth and tying its series low. Earlier in the night, NBC aired their usual trio of 'The Wall' (0.21), 'Dateline' (0.27), and 'SNL Vintage' (0.33). ABC's 'Nets v. Warriors' NBA game (0.79) was stronger than all non-'SNL' telecasts and led out of an 'NBA Countdown' special (0.27) that topped its hour. Airing after 'Undeniable: The Truth to Remember' (0.19) and a rerun of itself (0.24), CBS's '48 Hours' (0.33, -0.04) shed four-hundredths from its last episode. Fox had modest repeats of '9-1-1' (0.16) and 'The Cleaning Lady' (0.20). The series debut of 'Great Chocolate Showdown' (0.09) was respectable by CW standards and helped 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.07, +0.03) rise by three-hundredths. A 9:30PM encore of 'Funniest Animals' (0.08) once more grew from the original.
