Monday TV Ratings 5/23/22: Don’t Forget the Lyrics Off to Slow Start, The Neighborhood and NCIS: Hawaii Rise for Finales (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Fox's reboot of game show 'Don't Forget the Lyrics' (0.36) was off to a mediocre start on debut night, coming in a distant fourth in the 8PM timeslot. 'Beat Shazam' (0.38) built on that rating a bit for its return but still fell short of its August 2021 finale (0.45). CBS was up across the board with the season finales of 'The Neighborhood' (0.56, +0.02), 'Bob


Abishola' (0.51, +0.05), 'NCIS' (0.50, +0.06), and 'NCIS: Hawai'i' (0.41, +0.09). Each finale grew by a larger amount than the one that came before it. NBC got a pretty solid rating out of its broadcast of 2015 film 'Jurassic World' (0.42). ABC won the night with its 'Heat v. Celtics' game (1.93), but this NBA broadcast was about two-tenths lower than Saturday's (2.11). On the other hand, 'NBA Countdown' (0.62) grew by almost a tenth when compared to two days prior (0.54). CW dramas 'All American' (0.19, +0.02) and 'All American: Homecoming' (0.14, +0.01) inched up on finale night. 

Finals Update: 'NBA Playoffs: Heat v. Celtics' (+0.6), 'The Neighborhood' (+0.1), and 'Don't Forget the Lyrics' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'NBA Countdown' (-0.3) adjusted down.
