Sunday TV Ratings 6/12/22: Tony Awards Top 2021 Ceremony, Duncanville Sets New Season High, Time100 Special Mediocre, Riverdale Stays Pathetic (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: CBS's broadcast of the 75th Annual Tony Awards (0.57) was the night's top broadcast by a comfortable margin and outrated the 2021 ceremony (0.37) by a full two-tenths. In the 7PM hour, '60 Minutes' (0.38) posted the same rating as last week. ABC seemingly tried to compete with the 'Tony Awards' by airing a 'TIME100' special (0.28) that honored the world's most influential people. That plan backfired completely given that the 'TIME' broadcast was at less than half of what the 'Tony Awards' managed in the 18-49 demographic. A sturdy 'AFV' rerun (0.41) preceded the gala while encores of 'Abbott Elementary' (0.20/0.17) and 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.25) held down the 9-11PM stretch. NBC had little luck with repeats of 'Weakest Link' (0.21) and 'Dancing With Myself' (0.18) but got more mileage out of a 9PM 'America's Got Talent' encore (0.34). Animated comedy 'Duncanville' (0.19/0.20) was up significantly from last week's pair of episodes (0.13/0.12), and the 9:30 episode managed to set a new season high. Repeats of 'MasterChef' (0.10), 'The Simpsons' (0.19), and 'Bob's Burgers' (0.20) aired before 'Duncan'. 'Riverdale' (0.04, 0.00) held steady at its miserable rating and was more than doubled by the rerun of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.09) that followed it. Whatever small momentum the CW gathered at 9 evaporated at 9:30 when an encore of 'Would I Lie To You?' (0.02) posted an absolutely dreadful number.

Finals Update: The '75th Annual Tony Awards' (+0.2), 'TIME100' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (+0.1) adjusted up.
