Sunday TV Ratings 4/10/22: 60 Minutes Soars with Zelensky Interview, Weakest Link Rises, The Simpsons and SWAT Slip (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Buoyed by 'The Masters' (1.76) and Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy, CBS's '60 Minutes' (0.91, +0.38) soared to the top of primetime on Sunday night. Despite that surge, dramas 'The Equalizer' (0.53, -0.12), 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.44, -0.08), and 'SWAT' (0.38, -0.08) were in freefall mode after taking a week off. NBC's 'Weakest Link' (0.32, +0.08) was the strongest link of a fading lineup that included a rerun of 'American Song Contest' (0.18) and 'Transplant' (0.20, +0.05). On ABC, 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.52, -0.07) took a hit, 'American Idol' (0.73, +0.08) grew by eight-hundredths, and 'The Rookie' (0.35) held steady. Fox's 'Bob's Burgers' (0.31, -0.02) fell to a new series low but still beat out sinking editions of 'The Simpsons' (0.29, -0.07) and 'The Great North' (0.25, -0.02). At 7:30, 'Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade' (0.13) rose by two-hundredths from last year's even more pathetic showing (0.11). A repeat of 'The Simpsons' (0.15) began Fox's evening while an encore of 'Family Guy' (0.26) capped off the network's night. CW drama 'Riverdale' (0.04, +0.01) picked up a hundredth and led into reruns of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.03) and 'Would I Lie to You?' (0.03). 

Finals Update: The repeat of 'Family Guy' (+0.1) adjusted up. '60 Minutes' (-0.2) and 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (-0.1) adjusted down.
