In the latest TV show ratings, NBC’s The Blacklist drew a total of nearly 3.5 million viewers that Friday – which would mark the top audience of the already renewed drama of the year 2021 – and its third consecutive demo rating of 0.3 with the CBS lineup in repeat mode.
ABC’s shark tank (4.5 mil / 0.7) was constant from week to week, surpassing Friday in both measures. 20/20 took second place in the demo (at 0.6) while CBS ‘Blue Bloods rerun closed the second largest audience on Friday (3.9M).
Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown (2.1 mil / 0.5) went down from week to week.
Whose line of the CW is it anyway, I ask you? Tell me now! (891K / 0.1) and Penn & Teller: I dare you to deceive us! (789K / 0.1) added a couple of eyeballs at a time while they were flat in the demo.
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. Children, ask parents before you call.
