Saturday TV Ratings 5/28/22: Transplant Flatlines in New Timeslot, MLB Leads Quiet Night (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: NBC's 'Transplant' (0.12, -0.10) reemerged after over a month off with even fewer people watching than ever before. This rating trails the drama's last episode from its Sunday run (0.22) and serves as the program's weakest performance to date in the 18-49 demographic. At 9, a rerun of 'Dateline' (0.23) built on 'Transplant' by more than a full tenth. ABC went with repeats of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.20), 'Shark Tank' (0.18), and 'The Rookie' (0.15). CBS had a slightly lower average than the alphabet network with encores of 'Magnum PI' (0.14), 'Blue Bloods' (0.16), and '48 Hours' (0.14). Fox bested all the other networks with its broadcast of 'MLB: Regional Coverage' (0.33). The CW remained feeble as ever with reruns of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.05), 'Would I Lie To You?' (0.03), and 'Masters of Illusion' (0.02/0.04). 

Finals Update: Repeats of 'Shark Tank' (+0.1) and 'Blue Bloods' (+0.1) adjusted up.
