Ratings Roundup for the Week of May 22, 2022


CBS wrapped its remaining shows last week. The exception was FBI. That season finale was preempted in the wake of events in Texas. So far, there has been no word on if or when that episode will air in the US. (The episode did air as scheduled in Canada.) That rerun affected the other two FBI shows as well. FBI: International was down three hundred thousand viewers while FBI: Most Wanted was down close to one million viewers. NCIS: Los Angeles was down almost a million viewers for its season finale. Parent NCIS was up a rating tenth and a million viewers. NCIS: Hawai'i closed out its first season up a tenth and half a million viewers. The series finale of Bull was up close to a million viewers.
