Saturday TV Ratings 6/17/23: US Open Golf Championship Soars, Weak Showing for MLB (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Night three of the '2023 US Open Golf Championship' (0.65, +0.25) proved to be the most successful one yet. The NBC broadcast of the event soared to its strongest Adults 18-49 rating of this cycle and was finally able to be the highest-rated program of the night. Seemingly in response to the added competition, Fox's 'MLB: Regional Coverage' (0.19, -0.23) completely collapsed in the 8 p.m. hour. 'MLB' fell so far that even a 9 p.m. rerun of ABC's 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.21) outpaced it by a few ticks. The 8 p.m. (0.18) and 10 p.m. (0.17) reruns of 'AFV' were on the softer side in comparison. CBS had a meager 'NCIS' rerun (0.07) and a pair of '48 Hours' encores (0.10/0.13) that tried their best to improve on their lousy lead-in. 'Totally Weird and Funny' (0.02, -0.02 | 0.02, -0.02) took a hit on The CW. Repeats of 'Masters of Illusion' (0.02/0.02) occupied the 8 o'clock hour.

Finals Update: 'MLB: Regional Coverage' (+0.1) adjusted up.
