Thursday TV Ratings 7/21/22: January 6th Committee Hearings Sink Well Below Previous Primetime Hearing, CBS’s 1/6 Broadcast Trails Week-Ago Young Sheldon Rerun & Big Brother (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Despite having no serious competition, the 'January 6th Committee Hearings' were significantly lower than they were the last time they aired in primetime. ABC's broadcast led the way once again in the Adults 18-49 demographic (0.44 rating) and in total viewers (3.98 million). The alphabet network was down a staggering 33% when compared to the June 9th hearings (0.66) and also declined over 20% in terms of viewership (3.98m vs. 5.22m). NBC's telecast (0.41) declined by a much softer 15% in the ratings when stacked up against June 9 (0.48). However, the peacock network dealt with a much steeper decline when it came to total viewership, losing just over a million in that metric (2.69 million vs. 3.7 million). CBS took last yet again, managing a laughable 0.26 rating. This goes over 30% below the 6/9 demo (0.38) and trails the 'Young Sheldon' repeat (0.32) that occupied the timeslot last week. The Fox network went with repeats of 'MasterChef' (0.16) and 'Welcome To Flatch' (0.12/0.11) that declined on a week-to-week basis. The CW's encores of 'Walker' (0.05) and 'The Flash' (0.05) gained a hundredth apiece.

Finals Update: All shows held their preliminary ratings.
