Premiere Friday TV Ratings 9/24/21: Secret Celebrity Renovation Ends Steady Behind Down Big Brother, Dateline NBC Premiere Also Steady, Wonder Years Repeat Tops Ordinary Joe Repeat (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: There were no series debuts on Friday evening as a clip show of CBS's 'Big Brother' (0.5) and Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.5) tied for the top spot. CBS followed 'Brother' up with the steady season finale of lackluster filler program 'Secret Celebrity Renovation' (0.2) and another 'Blue Bloods' rerun (0.2). NBC got little mileage out of a pilot encore of 'Ordinary Joe' (0.2), with the 'Dateline' premiere (0.4) managing to double 'Joe in the 9pm hour. ABC had repeats of 'The Wonder Years' (0.3) and 'Home Economics' (0.3) in the 8pm hour, with 'Economics' only a tenth lower than Wednesday's return. '20/20' (0.3) remained in meager territory without its usual 'Shark Tank' lead-in. 'Dynasty' (0.1/0.1) held flat on the CW.

Finals Update: WWE SmackDown (+0.1) and repeats of The Wonder Years (+0.1) and 20/20 (+0.1) adjusted up. The 9 PM Dynasty (-0.1) adjusted down.
