ABC | Shark Tank (4.5 mil/0.7) dipped a tenth from its previous fresh episode yet still led Friday in the demo.

CBS | MacGyver (5 mil/0.5) and Magnum P.I. (5.5 mil/0.5) both dipped, while Blue Bloods (6.3 mil/0.5) was steady and easily copped Friday’s largest audience. (Speaking of the latter, you rise to leave when the commissioner says you can!)

FOX | Friday Night SmackDown (2.1 mil/0.6) was steady.

THE CW | Whose Line Is It Anyway? (928K/0.1) dipped, while Penn & Teller: Fool Us (824K/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. Warning: Contents may be hot!
