Ratings: Shark Tank Tops Friday With Socially Distanced Season 12 Premiere

Ratings SHark tank Season 12

In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s Shark Tank opened Season 12 with 3.8 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating, down just a tick from its previous average (3.9 mil/0.7) and leading Friday in both measures.

Over on CBS, Greatest #AtHome Videos (3.1 mil/0.4) was steady, while Undercover Boss (2.7 mil/0.4) ticked up from last week’s airing opposite the NBA Finals.

Elsewhere, Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown (2 mil/0.5) dipped, while The CW’s Masters of Illusion (718K/0.1) and World’s Funniest Animals (682K/0.1) both were steady.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
