In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ two-hour broadcast of the 48th Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday night averaged 2.4 million total viewers and a 0.2 demo rating — down 23 and 33 percent from last year’s very virtual ceremony but still a vast improvement on the Pop TV/900K days.
NBC’s coverage of the latest U.S. Olympics trials dominated Friday in both measures, with the 8 o’clock hour doing 4.1 mil/0.6 and the 9 pm portion rising to 4.4 mil/0.8.
FOX | Friday Night SmackDown (1.9 mil/0.5) was steady.
ABC | Emergency Call (2.9 mil/0.3) was steady.
THE CW | Charmed (390K/0.1) and Dynasty (240K/0.1) each dropped some eyeballs.
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!
