Blue Bloods (6 mil/0.4) similarly dipped to series lows — it’s almost as if the three on, two off, one on, two off, one on, one off, two on, two off, one on scheduling is affecting the numbers — yet as usual it copped Friday’s largest audience. Magnum P.I. (5.4 mil/0.5), featuring a Performer of the Week honorable mention, was steady.
ABC’s steady Shark Tank (4.5 mil/0.7) led Friday in the demo.
Elsewhere, NBC’s The Blacklist (3.15 mil/0.3) dipped to a new audience low while flat in the demo… Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown (2.2 mil/0.5) was up a tenth… and The CW’s Penn & Teller: Think You Can Fool Us? Think Again! (712K/0.1) was 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. Kids, ask parents before calling.
