Monday TV Ratings 5/30/22: American Ninja Warrior: All Star Spectacular and Beat Shazam Lead Abysmal Memorial Day, Don’t Forget The Lyrics Gets Uglier (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Fox's 'Don't Forget the Lyrics' (0.27, -0.09) shaved off nearly a full tenth from a premiere that was already underwhelming and was followed by a sinking 'Beat Shazam' (0.31, -0.07). Though 'Shazam' dealt with some slippage, it still tied 'American Ninja Warrior All-Star Spectacular' (0.31) for the top spot on a bleak Memorial Day. After 'Warrior', NBC aired a rerun of 'Weakest Link' (0.25) that led the 10PM hour. 'The Neighborhood' (0.26), 'Bob Hearts Abishola' (0.23), 'NCIS' (0.21), and 'NCIS: Hawai'i' (0.22) were all in repeat-mode on CBS. ABC's broadcast of 2016 animated film 'Zootopia' (0.23) was over 40% lower than what 'Up' (0.40) posted in this slot two weeks ago. The repeat of 'The Conners' (0.12) that followed was feeble in the 10:30PM timeslot. The CW went with a trio of 'World's Funniest Animals' encores (0.05/0.05/0.05). 

Finals Update: 'Don't Forget the Lyrics' (+0.1) and a rerun of 'The Neighborhood' (+0.1) adjusted up.
