Friday TV Ratings 11/6/20: ABC Leads Continued Election Coverage, WWE Smackdown Wins the Night, American Ninja Warrior Finale Steady

Preliminary Analysis: As a testament to political fatigue, Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.7) topped a night where the other big three networks were stuck broadcasting a fourth night of election coverage. ABC led the way this time around, garnering a 0.5 rating for its 8pm telecast. But a 10pm edition of 'Shark Tank' (0.3) that came after it collapsed on a week-to-week basis. 'Tank' went four-tenths below the 0.7 it posted on October 30th and hit a brand-new series low. NBC was a notch behind ABC with 10pm election coverage (0.4), the broadcast led out of a steady 'American Ninja Warrior' finale (0.5). CBS came in last with its coverage (0.2) but was even earlier in the night with 'The Greatest #AtHome Videos' (0.4) and a 'Magnum PI' encore (0.3). The CW had more 'Masters of Illusion' (0.1/0.1) and 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.1/0.1).
