Tuesday TV Ratings 5/24/22: This Is Us Hits Highest Rating Since 2020 for Series Finale, FBI: International and FBI: Most Wanted End With New Lows, Name That Tune Up for Finale (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: NBC drama 'This Is Us' (1.27, +0.32) exploded to a mammoth rating for its series finale, closing out season six with its highest rating since November 2020. A scripted series clearing the 1.0 threshold without a sports lead-in has become increasingly rare, but 'This Is Us' has proved that this feat is still possible. Sitcom 'Young Rock' (0.43/0.45; +0.08/+0.02) and drama series 'New Amsterdam' (0.47, +0.09) sandwiched 'Us' and both experienced significant growth for their season finales. Airing after a rerun of 'FBI' (0.47), 'FBI: International' (0.44, -0.10) and 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.41, -0.07) both slipped to new series lows for their respective CBS finales. ABC's 'Holey Moley' (0.47, +0.11) rose by more than a tenth and climbed to a new season high. 'The Chase' (0.32, +0.05) grew by about half the amount that 'Moley' did and led into a rerun of 'Who Do You Believe?' (0.23) that was stronger than last week's original episode (0.18). Fox's 'Name That Tune' (0.32, +0.06) picked up six-hundredths for its finale and posted its highest rating in over a month. The CW had a pair of 'Superman & Lois' reruns (0.05/0.03).

Finals Update: 'This Is Us' (+0.1) and the repeat of 'FBI' (+0.1) adjusted up.
