Friday TV Ratings 12/18/20: Shrek the Halls and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure Perform Decently, MacGyver Steady, College Football Leads (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: 'Shark Tank' took the night off on ABC, replaced by Christmas specials 'Olaf's Frozen Adventure' (0.5) and 'Shrek the Halls' (0.5). 'Olaf' matched what it garnered when it aired last month (0.5) while 'Shrek' was two-tenths below last year (0.7). A steady edition of '20/20' (0.4) closed out the alphabet network's evening. CBS's 'MacGyver' (0.4) inched down to a new series low but 'Magnum PI' (0.5) and 'Blue Bloods' (0.5) clung to last week's numbers. Fox won the night altogether with 'College Football' (0.7). NBC offered up a repeat of 'Weakest Link' (0.4) and a low-rated 'Dateline' (0.3). The CW had a double-pump of 'The Christmas Caroler Challenge' (0.1/0.1).

Finals Update: 'PAC-12 Champsionship' (+0.2), 'MacGyver' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'Dateline NBC' (+0.1) adjusted up.
