Friday TV Ratings 5/21/21: Shark Tank Ends Steady, Dick Van Dyke Show Special Weak, WWE SmackDown Ties for First (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: Following last week's disappointing performance, Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.5) got back a tenth and pulled into a tie with ABC's 'Shark Tank' finale (0.5). Later in the alphabet network's evening, '20/20' (0.4) matched its previous broadcast. CBS's 'Dick Van Dyke Show' special (0.2) failed to draw in viewers but was on-par with the equally anemic Queen Elizabeth special from the week prior. 'The Blacklist' (0.3) and 'Dateline' (0.4) were flat on NBC, as were the CW's 'Charmed' (0.1) and 'Dynasty' (0.1).

Finals Update: 'Shark Tank' (0.6, +0.1), '20/20' (0.5, +0.1), 'The Blacklist' (0.4, +0.1), and the 'Dick Van Dyke' special (0.3, +0.1) adjusted up. 'Dynasty' (0.0, -0.1) adjusted down.
