Friday TV Ratings 6/25/21: Daytime Emmys Abysmal, Olympic Gymnastic Trials Easily Lead (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: NBC's broadcast of the 'Olympic Gymnastics Trials' (0.7) managed to bring back some life to Friday nights. The 'Trials' telecast topped usual champion 'WWE Smackdown' (0.5), the latter of which was steady with last week on Fox. A 10pm 'Dateline' original (0.5) noticeably benefited from the stronger 'Olympics' lead-in. On ABC, 'Emergency Call' (0.3) was on-par with its previous episode and led into a '20/20' encore (0.3). CBS's showing of the '48th Daytime Emmy Awards' (0.2) completely tanked at 8, even by Friday standards. A repeat of 'Blue Bloods' (0.2) matched the ceremony at 10. 'Charmed' (0.1) and 'Dynasty' (0.1) posted the same rating as the week prior on the CW.

Finals Update: US Olympic Gymnastics Trials (+0.1) and Emergency Call (+0.1) adjusted up. Dateline NBC (-0.1) adjusted down.
