Friday TV Ratings 4/29/22: NFL Draft Sinks on Night 2 and Ties Dateline NBC for the Lead, SmackDown Declines, Magnum PI Hits New Low (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: The '2022 NFL Draft' (0.45, -0.41) plummeted for its second night on ABC, losing close to half of what it posted on Thursday evening (0.86). The 'Draft' fell so far that it was merely able to tie for the top spot of the night with NBC's 'Dateline' (0.45, -0.01). 'Dateline' itself nearly doubled a sinking edition of 'The Blacklist' (0.23, -0.06) that aired before it. CBS also had nothing but declines as 'Come Dance with Me' (0.25, -0.02), 'Magnum PI' (0.31, -0.09), and 'Blue Bloods' (0.38, -0.03) all lost some ground. Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.38, -0.09) fell by nearly a full tenth. 'Charmed' (0.06) was stable on the CW while 'Dynasty' (0.04, +0.01) was the only show of the night to actually rise. 

Finals Update: 'Blue Bloods' (+0.1) adjusted up.
