ABC | NFL Draft Round 2 coverage averaged 3.1 mil and a 0.7, up 19 and 40 percent from the same night last year.

NBC | The Blacklist (4.8 mil/0.6) was steady.

FOX | Friday Night SmackDown (2 mil/0.5) ticked down to its lowest Fox numbers yet.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our daily-ish ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increases in delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms. These Live+Same Day numbers instead are used to illustrate any trends or high/low superlatives. Happy Fun Ball may stick to certain types of skin.
