In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ MacGyver heralded this week’s cancellation news by ticking down in the demo (to match its series low of 0.4), while adding a handful of viewers (to deliver a total of 4.5 million).
Leading out of that, Magnum P.I. (5.3 mil/0.5) was steady in the demo and Blue Bloods (6.2 mil/0.5) dipped, though the latter of course, and easily, copped Friday’s biggest audience.
Over on ABC, Shark Tank (4.1 mil/0.7) ticked up and topped Friday in the demo.
Elsewhere, Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown (2.1 mil/0.55) and The CW’s Penn & Teller: Fool Us (751K/0.1) were both 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!
