Saturday TV Ratings 4/30/22: Beauty and the Beast Modest, Dateline Tops Low Night, USFL Weaker (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: ABC's broadcast of 1991 animated feature 'Beauty and the Beast' (0.28) was about two-hundredths lower than last week's 'Lion King' (0.30) but ended up being the second highest-rated broadcast of the night. An encore of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.20) occupied the 10PM hour. NBC's rerun of 'Dateline' (0.30) topped the evening and led into a passable 'SNL Vintage' (0.26). CBS's '48 Hours' (0.21, -0.03) dipped by three-hundredths and led out of repeats of 'The Equalizer' (0.20) and itself (0.18). Fox's 'Stallions v. Breakers' USFL game (0.22) nabbed third place in the 8PM timeslot. On the CW, 'Would I Lie To You?' (0.03, -0.02) and 'Masters of Illusion' (0.03, -0.01) inched down from last week. A repeat of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.04) secured the 8PM slot while a 'Masters' encore (0.02) settled for 9:30.
