Saturday TV Ratings 2/19/22: Winter Olympics Hit Low for Final Primetime Competition of 2022, Celebrity Big Brother and Great Chocolate Showdown Tie Lows (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: The '2022 Winter Olympics' (0.96, -0.12) somehow slipped further on Saturday evening, falling below a 1.0 rating for the first time in its run. Though NBC still outpaced all rival networks, these ratings are nothing short of awful for such a prestigious event. 'Celebrity Big Brother' (0.26, -0.19) completely collapsed on CBS, sinking to the pitiful low it posted on Super Bowl Sunday. Airing after the 9PM repeat of itself (0.20), '48 Hours' (0.26, -0.02) lost two-hundredths in the 10PM timeslot. ABC had 'Jeopardy! National College Championship' reruns (0.17/0.21/0.23) that crushed Fox's encores of '9-1-1' (0.12) and 'The Cleaning Lady' (0.09). The CW's 'Great Chocolate Showdown' (0.05) held even for the third week in a row and led into repeats of 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.04/0.03).

Finals Update: '2022 Winter Olympics' (+0.3), 'Celebrity Big Brother' (+0.1), and '48 Hours' (+0.1) adjusted up.
