Friday TV Ratings 12/10/21: Blue Bloods and Magnum PI Tick Up, Shark Tank Drops After Weeks Off (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: After climbing to a season high for its previous installment, ABC's 'Shark Tank' (0.50, -0.18) fell by close to two-tenths and dropped to its lowest rating of the current season. At 9, '20/20' (0.34, -0.02) shed two-hundredths and was beat out by a declining edition of NBC's 'Dateline' (0.37, -0.05). 'Dateline' outdid '20/20' despite having 'The Wall' (0.35, +0.08) as a lead-in. On Fox, 'WWE Smackdown' (0.50, -0.01) dropped by a single hundredth and found itself tied with 'Tank'. Despite the efforts on those networks, a steady broadcast of CBS's 'SWAT' (0.54) was ultimately the highest-rated telecast of the night. The positive momentum continued from there as both 'Magnum PI' (0.49, +0.07) and 'Blue Bloods' (0.50, +0.11) soared to season highs. 'Nancy Drew' (0.06, +0.03) picked up three-hundredths on the CW but still trailed the repeat of 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.10) that preceded it. 

Finals Update: 'Dateline NBC' (+0.1) adjusted up.
