Friday TV Ratings 2/11/22: Celebrity Big Brother and Jeopardy! National College Championship Give Back Gains, 2022 Winter Olympics Near Low (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Just one day after an impressive surge, the '2022 Winter Olympics' (1.57, -0.58) came crashing down on Friday evening. Though the NBC broadcast was still a full ratings point above its nearest competitor, this continues to be an unsatisfactory year for the event in terms of Nielsen data. On ABC, night four of the 'Jeopardy! National College Championship' (0.56, -0.04) inched down a bit from the third installment and led into a surprisingly robust '20/20' (0.50). Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.55, +0.04) rose by four-hundredths and came within striking distance of ABC's 8PM offering. On CBS, 'Celebrity Big Brother' (0.42, -0.18) was well below Wednesday's episode but actually improved on the rating it posted the previous Friday (0.38). In contrast, the 10PM repeat of 'Blue Bloods' (0.26) was three-hundredths shy of the week prior. The CW had microscopic reruns of 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.05) and 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.04/0.08). 

Finals Update: The '2022 Winter Olympics' (+0.3), 'Jeopardy! National College Championship' (+0.1), 'WWE SmackDown' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'Blue Bloods' (+0.1) adjusted up.
