Friday TV Ratings 3/12/21: Shark Tank Slips but Still Leads, Meghan and Harry Interview Repeats Well (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: It was a particularly rough night on ABC as 'Shark Tank' (0.6) lost a tenth and '20/20' (0.4) shed two-tenths. 'Shark Tank' was still the highest-rated program of the evening, but '20/20' fell behind all of its 2021 broadcasts. On CBS, an encore of the wildly-popular 'Meghan & Harry' interview (0.5) proved to be on-par with last week's drama originals (0.45/0.53/0.47). A low-rated 'Clarice' encore (0.2) occupied the 10pm slot. NBC's 'The Blacklist' (0.3) inched down while 'Dateline' (0.5) built from it at 9. On Fox, 'WWE Smackdown' (0.5) was a tenth shy of its previous original. Over on the CW, 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' (0.1) ticked down while 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.1) remained steady.

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