Sunday TV Ratings 3/6/22: The Courtship Bombs, Bill Barr Interview and Transplant Also Abysmal, American Idol Rises in Week Two (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: ABC enjoyed a vibrant night as 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.85, +0.20), 'American Idol' (1.06, +0.13), and 'The Rookie' (0.51, +0.07) all soared to season highs. NBC had the exact opposite luck as dating game show 'The Courtship' (0.16) completely tanked for its series debut, losing 50% of the 'America's Got Talent: Extreme' repeat (0.32) that came before it. At 9, an interview with former attorney general Bill Barr (0.20) barely improved from there and 'Transplant' (0.13) was dead on arrival at 10PM. CBS's '60 Minutes' (0.62, -0.06) lost a few ticks, but dramas 'The Equalizer' (0.60, +0.02), 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.51, +0.02), and 'SWAT' (0.51, +0.06) all rose from last week. On Fox, 'The Simpsons' (0.42, +0.03) and 'The Great North' (0.30, +0.02) bounced back as 'Bob's Burgers' (0.34, -0.06) and 'Family Guy' (0.41, -0.01) slipped further. 'NASCAR' (0.73) and a 'Call Me Kat' rerun (0.30) occupied the 7PM hour once more. Airing behind a repeat of 'All American: Homecoming' (0.05), The CW's 'March' (0.03) tied its week-ago installment. 

Finals Update: 'American Idol' (+0.1) and 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (+0.1) adjusted up.
