Friday TV Ratings 2/26/21: Shark Tank Holds Steady in First, The Blacklist Slips (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: To the surprise of no one, ABC's 'Shark Tank' (0.7) led the way on another uninteresting Friday night. The reality series was steady once more but 10pm companion '20/20' (0.6) actually rose a tenth. On Fox, 'WWE Smackdown' (0.5) lost a tenth but beat out all non-ABC broadcasts. 'The Blacklist' (0.3) inched down on NBC as 'Dateline' (0.3) held even with Thursday's performance. CBS was slightly stronger than the peacock network despite being in repeat-mode with 'MacGyver' (0.3), 'Magnum PI' (0.4), and 'Blue Bloods' (0.3). 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' (0.1) shed a tenth on the CW while 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.1) remained steady. 

Finals Update: Whose Line Is It Anyway? (+0.1) and the repeat of Blue Bloods (+0.1) adjusted up.
