Friday TV Ratings 2/12/21: Blue Bloods and Other CBS Shows Hold Steady, Dipping Shark Tank Leads, The Blacklist Down to New Low (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC's 'Shark Tank' (0.7) and Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.5) each lost a tenth on a week-to-week basis. This marks the lowest rating that 'Smackdown' has posted since the January 1st installment (0.53). The alphabet network fared better after 'Tank' as '20/20' (0.6) matched last week's outing at 10. CBS was even across the board with dramas 'MacGyver' (0.5), 'Magnum PI' (0.5), and 'Blue Bloods' (0.5). On NBC, 'The Blacklist' (0.3) and 'Dateline' (0.3) both shed a tenth from last Friday but 'Dateline' actually tied what it posted on Thursday (0.34). The CW stayed out of the original business with repeats of 'Go-Big Show' (0.1) and 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.1).

Finals Update: WWE SmackDown (+0.1) and The Blacklist (+0.1) adjusted up.
