Reviews: SmackDown, Blue Bloods Lead Friday; MacGyver ends on a low note

In the latest TV show reviews, Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown scored a 0.5 (along with 1.9 million total viewers) and held steady week after week to lead the night in the demo (with ABC’s Shark Tank on the jaw and CBS ‘drama lineup in decline).

In fact, CBS’s MacGyver (4.3 mil / 0.4) linked his demo low with the season / series finale. TVLine readers gave the closer an average grade of “A-“; Get exclusive information on what Season 6 was up to. Magnum PI (5.1 mil / 0.4) and Blue Bloods (6.2 mil / 0.4) also hit series lows across the board, though the latter still outperformed the biggest audience on Friday.

Elsewhere, NBC’s The Blacklist (3.3 mil / 0.3) fell… ABC’s coverage of NFL Draft Night 2 averaged 1.8 mil / 0.4…. and the world’s funniest animals by CW made 1 mil / 0.2.

The Live + Same Day numbers given in our rating column do not reflect the overall performance of a program, as delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms as well as display outside the home is increasingly used. Instead, these numbers (Nielsen Fast Nationals, unless labeled finals) aim to merely illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: the contents can be hot!
