Sunday TV Ratings 5/28/23: The Blacklist Rises, HouseBroken Sets New Low, 60 Minutes Repeat Leads Dismal Night (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Since most shows wrapped up their seasons a week or two ago, only two originals were shown on Sunday evening. The stronger of the two was NBC's 'The Blacklist' (0.19, +0.04). The 10-year old drama gained four-hundredths and tied the rerun of 'Magnum PI' (0.19) that led into it. Despite the growth in the back-half of the peacock network's night, the 7 p.m. repeat of 'Dateline' (0.23) bested both shows. The weaker of the two was Fox's 'HouseBroken' (0.09, -0.02). The cartoon sitcom lost two-hundredths and posted a putrid 0.09 rating for both the 9 p.m. episode and the 9:30 p.m. episode. This serves as a new low for the series, replacing the low (0.11) that it posted just last week. This result was so abysmal that even reruns of 'Don't Forget the Lyrics!' (0.14) and 'Beat Shazam' (0.11) were a good bit higher at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. respectively. CBS went with encores of '60 Minutes' (0.31/0.24), 'Let's Make a Deal' (0.24), and 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.15). The 7 p.m. rerun of '60 Minutes' topped the night altogether. ABC had some solid repeats of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.25/0.27) and a lackluster rerun marathon of 'The Conners' (0.15/0.13/0.12/0.11). The CW barely even registered at all in the Adults 18-49 demographic as repeats of '100 Days to Indy' (0.01) and 'The Great American Joke Off' (0.01) narrowly missed the dreaded 0.00 rating. The repeat of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.02) that aired in-between was a touch less embarrassing. 

Finals Update: The 8 PM repeat of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (+0.1) adjusted up.
