Saturday TV Ratings 5/14/22: Saturday Night Live Down Again, Top Gun Leads Primetime, Finding Dory OK (UPDAED)

Ratings Analysis: Despite having Selena Gomez as host and Post Malone as the musical guest, NBC staple 'Saturday Night Live' (0.81, -0.02) shed two-hundredths from the May 7th episode that had Benedict Cumberbatch in the hosting role (0.83). Reruns of 'Dateline' (0.17/0.20) and 'SNL Vintage' (0.25) were passable in primetime. CBS's broadcast of Tom Cruise film 'Top Gun' (0.27) beat out ABC's showing of animated sequel 'Finding Dory' (0.20) head-on. ABC had the upper-hand in the 10PM hour as its 'Judge Steve Harvey' rerun (0.16) trumped CBS's 'Bob Hearts Abishola' encore (0.13). Fox made almost no noise with feeble repeats of 'The Masked Singer' (0.10) and 'Domino Masters' (0.10). 'Would I Lie To You?' (0.05) and 'Masters of Illusion' (0.04) were steady on the CW. The 8PM 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' repeat (0.06) bested both of them while the 9:30PM 'Masters of Illusion' encore (0.03) was a hundredth short of last week's. 

Finals Update: The repeat of 'Judge Steve Harvey' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'Masters of Illusion' (-0.1) and its repeat (-0.1) adjusted down, as did the 9 PM repeat of 'Dateline NBC' (-0.1).
