Sunday TV Ratings 5/8/22: Fox Cartoons, American Idol, and The Rookie Drop, SNL Mother’s Day Special Weak (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Fox's low-rated animated lineup got even weaker as 'Duncanville' (0.13, -0.05) and 'The Simpsons' (0.26, -0.05) both fell by five-hundredths and crashed to new series lows. 'The Great North' (0.23, -0.03) and 'Bob's Burgers' (0.32, -0.03) shed three-hundredths while 'Family Guy' (0.35, -0.01) only dropped by one. A meager 'Simpsons' rerun (0.12) was dead-last in the 7PM hour. ABC dealt with its own set of declines as 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.68, -0.13), 'American Idol' (0.76, -0.16), and 'The Rookie' (0.41, -0.08) all lost considerable ground. The news was a lot brighter on CBS, with the network enjoying upticks all evening long. '60 Minutes' (0.56, +0.06) and 'The Equalizer' (0.57, +0.06) were up by six-hundredths apiece while 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.44, +0.02) and 'SWAT' (0.43, +0.02) grew by two. NBC had middling broadcasts of 'American Ninja Warrior: Women's Championship' (0.33) and 'An SNL Mother's Day' (0.32). On the CW, 'Riverdale' (0.06, +0.02) rose by two-hundredths and was followed by the usual rerun duo of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.04) and 'Would I Lie to You?' (0.03).

Finals Update: 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (+0.1), '60 Minutes' (+0.1), 'American Idol' (+0.2), and 'The Equalizer' (+0.1) adjusted up.
