Sunday TV Ratings 7/17/22: Celebrity Family Feud, The Final Straw and Big Brother Tumble, The $100,000 Pyramid and Who Do You Think You Are? Rise (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Instead of airing the usual 'AFV' rerun in the 7PM timeslot, ABC went with a significantly weaker encore of new series 'Claim to Fame' (0.20). That clearly hurt 'Celebrity Family Feud' (0.51, -0.17) to an alarming degree, sending the game show to a rating only a hundredth higher than its series low. 'The Final Straw' (0.34, -0.08) dropped alongside 'Feud', dropping a little less than 20% from a premiere rating that was already quite lackluster. Amidst these harsh declines, 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.39, +0.05) miraculously gained five-hundredths after returning with a new series low the week prior. NBC series 'Who Do You Think You Are?' (0.22, +0.08) also built on a meager launch, clawing its way up to a semi-decent rating in the 7PM hour. A rerun of 'America's Got Talent' (0.26) and a telecast of the 'World Track and Field Championships' (0.26) did decent business in the 8-11PM stretch. On CBS, 'Big Brother' (0.62, -0.10) was a tenth shy of last Sunday's outing but was close to doubling its '60 Minutes' lead-in (0.35). Reruns of 'The Equalizer' (0.19) and 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.19) were even weaker than last week. Fox's encores of 'Beat Shazam' (0.14), 'The Simpsons' (0.19), 'The Great North' (0.15), and 'Family Guy' (0.21) were all either a hundredth or two higher than they were on July 10th. The 'Bob's Burgers' (0.20) rerun climbed by four-hundredths in comparison. The CW's 'Riverdale' (0.05, -0.01) shed a hundredth and led into another 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' repeat (0.05).

Finals Update: 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (+0.1) and 'World Track & Field Championships' (+0.1) adjusted up.
