Saturday TV Ratings 6/18/22: Stanley Cup Drops in Game 2, Transplant Nears Season High, Superstar Racing Experience Low (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Game 2 of the 2022 'Stanley Cup Finals' (1.11, -0.22) was a little more than two-tenths below Wednesday's broadcast of the first game (1.33) but still gave ABC the upper-hand over the other networks. Fox's 'MLB Regional Coverage' (0.30) took a distant second-place and ended up being seven-hundredths lower than last week's broadcast. On NBC, 'Transplant' (0.20, +0.11) soared to its highest rating in over two months but was still bested by the 'Dateline' rerun (0.28) that followed it. 'Superstar Racing Experience' (0.14) and a '48 Hours' rerun (0.13) failed to make much of a dent on CBS. 'Would I Lie To You?' (0.05, +0.01) and 'Masters of Illusion' (0.03, +0.01) both got a hundredth back on the CW. 'Masters' was beaten by a 9:30PM repeat of itself (0.04) while 'Lie' was put to shame by an 8PM encore of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.07). 

Finals Update: 'Stanley Cup Game 2' (+0.5), 'MLB Regional Coverage' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'Dateline NBC' (+0.1) adjusted up.
