Friday TV Ratings 10/20/17: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Holds Steady as ABC Collapses to Horrific Numbers (UPDATED)

It was a pretty rough Friday all around, with CBS being the exception, as their shows managed to stay at respectable levels. ABC absolutely had the worst night of the bunch, with Once Upon a Time easily hitting a series low. Behind it, Inhumans sank to 0.4, which is borderline criminal. It ties Ten Days In the Valley this week, which is something that no show wants to do. Behind it, 20/20 held up a bit better than the other shows but still hit a lowly 0.5. Still, 20/20's 0.5 is the least of ABC's Friday problems. On NBC, Dateline lost two tenths and hit a soft 0.7, leading out of a True Crime repeat for the last time before Blindspot joins the NBC lineup next week. The CW had a duo of 0.2s, with Jane down a tenth and Crazy Ex steady. Fox stayed steady, and while it's undeniable that Hell's Kitchen has weakened, the show's still doing pretty well when you look at the competition. The same can not be said for the Exoricist, which continues to perform very weakly. CBS won the night with solid but uninspiring numbers from its procedurals. MacGyver remained the weak point, but staying steady for all of its season so far is an accomplishment. Hawaii Five-0 was the night's #1 show, and Blue Bloods dominated 10 PM. While the shows are noticeably lower than last year, these numbers are still quite good.
