Friday TV Ratings 12/3/21: Baking It Preview Mediocre, Blue Bloods and WWE SmackDown Slip, PAC-12 Championship Leads (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: ABC easily led the way with its broadcast of the 'PAC-12 Championship' (0.95) and came within striking distance of that elusive 1.0 rating. On CBS, 'SWAT' (0.54, +0.10) rose by a tenth and found itself scoring a new season high. In spite of that, dramas 'Magnum PI' (0.42, -0.01) and 'Blue Bloods' (0.39, -0.07) both declined, with 'Bloods' falling down to a series low. Though it usually clocks in at #1 or 2, Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.51, -0.06) dropped by six-hundredths and could only capture third place. NBC's Samberg and Rudolph-assisted 'Baking It' special (0.33) posted a fairly mediocre rating by Friday standards but 'Dateline' (0.42, +0.16) rebounded rather nicely, likely due to the absence of '20/20'. In CW news, 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.10, +0.02) gained two-hundredths as 'Nancy Drew' (0.03, -0.01) fell by one. 

Finals Update: 'PAC-12 Championship' (+0.3) adjusted up.
