Ratings: SmackDown Tops in Demo, Blue Bloods Rerun Cops Most Viewers

Ratings WWE SmackDown

In the latest TV show ratings, Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown drew 2.2 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating, holding steady week-to-week and leading the night in the demo (with ABC’s Shark Tank and CBS’ drama trifecta all in rerun mode).

CBS’ Blue Bloods repeat, meanwhile, copped Friday’s largest audience, with 4.3 million total viewers.


NBC | The newly renewed The Blacklist (3.3 mil/0.4) matched last week’s winter premiere numbers.

THE CW | Whose Line Is It Anyway? (1.1 mil/0.2) and Penn & Teller: Fool Us (826K/0.1) each added a few eyeballs while steady in the demo.

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. Kids, ask parents before calling.
