Friday TV Ratings 2/18/22: Winter Olympics Hit Another New Low, Celebrity Big Brother Steady, Jeopardy! National College Championship Ties Low (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: The '2022 Winter Olympics' (1.08, -0.30) simply could not catch a break on NBC, this time barely keeping itself above a 1.0 rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic. Over on the Fox network, 'WWE Smackdown' (0.54, -0.01) shed a hundredth and beat out another outing of ABC's 'Jeopardy! National College Championship (0.50, -0.11) head-on. After 'Jeopardy!', a rerun of '20/20' (0.46) was shockingly stout in the 9PM slot. On CBS, 'Celebrity Big Brother' (0.45, -0.09) was a tenth shy of Wednesday's installment and led into a rerun of 'Blue Bloods' (0.24). The CW aired encores of 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.06) and 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.05/0.08).

Finals Update: '2022 Winter Olympics' (+0.2), 'Jeopardy! National College Championship' (+0.1), and the repeat of '20/20' (+0.1) adjusted up.
