Friday TV Ratings 1/29/21: 20/20 Slips Behind Shark Tank Repeat, WWE SmackDown Leads (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: With ABC's 'Shark Tank' (0.5) in repeat-mode and an original '20/20' (0.4) crumbling due to the reduced lead-in, a steady 'WWE Smackdown' (0.6) was able to lead Fox to a rare Friday-night win. NBC had stable editions of recently-renewed 'The Blacklist' (0.4) and 'Dateline' (0.4). CBS was entirely in reruns with 'MacGyver' (0.3), 'Magnum PI' (0.3), and 'Blue Bloods' (0.4). The CW went with another batch of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.2/0.2) and 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.1).

Finals Update: The 'Shark Tank' repeat (0.6, +0.1) adjusted up.
