Friday TV Ratings 10/23/20: World Series Down Again, Shark Tank and Big Brother Clip Show Also Slip (UPDATED)


Preliminary Analysis: Game 3 of the World Series (1.3) came in a full point below what game 2 garnered on Wednesday (2.3) and well behind Tuesday's first game (2.4). Despite that, it was still the top broadcast of the night by a wide margin thanks to how depressed Friday ratings normally are. ABC was no match for Fox as 'Shark Tank' (0.5) lost a tenth from last week's tepid premiere and '20/20' (0.4) only fell from there. CBS's 'Undercover Boss' (0.3) inched down from its previous outing, sandwiched between an uncharacteristically low 'Big Brother' (0.5) and a 'Blue Bloods' repeat (0.2). 'Dateline' (0.4) lost a tenth on NBC and led out of another 'American Ninja Warrior repeat' (0.3). The CW was the only network that held steady, with 'Masters of Illusion' (0.1/0.1) and 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.1/0.1) matching last week. 

Finals Update: Game 3 of the World Series (2.0, +0.7) adjusted up by seven-tenths but still came three-tenths behind game 2. 'Shark Tank' (0.6, +0.1) and 'Big Brother' (0.6, +0.1) also adjusted up.
