Friday TV Ratings 5/14/21: Blue Bloods Finale Ties Shark Tank for #1, WWE SmackDown Slides, The Queen Carries On Special Rates Terribly (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: Despite leading out of an abysmal 'Queen Elizabeth' special (0.2), CBS's 'Blue Bloods' (0.5/0.5) rose a tenth for its 11th season finale. While still two-tenths below its year-ago closer (0.7), the police procedural remains in solid shape. ABC had steady editions of 'Shark Tank' (0.5) and '20/20' (0.4) while Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.4) took a noticeable, two-tenth dip. On NBC, 'The Blacklist' (0.3) lost a few hundredths, but 'Dateline' (0.4) was relatively unchanged. Following its horrific start from last week, 'Dynasty' (0.1) picked up a tenth on the CW, with lead-in 'Charmed' (0.1) matching its week-ago delivery. 

Finals Update: The 'Blue Bloods' 10pm finale (0.6, +0.1), 'The Blacklist' (0.4, +0.1), and 'The Queen Carries On' (0.3, +0.1) adjusted up.
