Friday TV Ratings 8/21/20: WWE SmackDown Stays on Top, Blue Bloods Repeat Leads in Viewers (UPDATED)

It was another Friday led by WWE Smackdown, with Fox's solidly-performing Friday night program ticking up a tenth from last week's preliminary number to a 0.6. It adjusted up last week in the finals, so it is steady week-to-week. This result gives Fox another easy victory for Friday night.

The CW had Masters of Illusion repeats at 0.1. Being Reuben aired at 9, but nobody would know it considering its 0.0s for both episodes.

NBC was the closest behind Fox, with repeats of America's Got Talent and Dateline NBC at 0.4.

ABC had a Shark Tank repeat at 0.4, followed by a 0.3 for a 20/20 repeat, down a tenth from last week.

CBS had repeats of their regular Friday lineup at 0.3/0.3/0.3, the first time this lineup has aired together in over a month. Though MacGyver was a notch below last week's Greatest #AtHome Videos finale, Blue Bloods rose at 10 and easily won the night in viewers.

Finals Update: The repeat of America's Got Talent (-0.1) adjusted down.
