Friday TV Ratings 5/27/22: The Blacklist Inches Up for Finale, WWE SmackDown Leads (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: NBC drama 'The Blacklist' (0.24, +0.01) wrapped up its ninth season with a predictably meager rating but at least managed to scrape together an extra hundredth for said season finale. The 'Dateline' rerun (0.29) that came after 'Blacklist' ended up growing from it by five-hundredths. ABC's 'Together As One' Soul of a Nation special about Asian-Americans (0.27) was unremarkable in the 8PM hour and lost out to the '20/20' encore (0.28) that followed it. 'Come Dance With Me' (0.25, -0.01) shed a single hundredth on CBS and led into weakened repeats of 'Magnum PI' (0.19) and 'Blue Bloods' (0.21). On Fox, 'WWE Smackdown' (0.43, -0.02) was two-hundredths lower than last week but easily topped the night. The CW's 'Charmed' (0.05, -0.01) dropped by a hundredth as 'Dynasty' (0.03) tied its week-ago broadcast. 

Finals Update: 'Together As One' (+0.1) and repeats of 'Dateline NBC' (+0.1) and '20/20' (+0.1) adjusted up.
