Friday TV Ratings 7/7/23: Moonshine Has OK Start by CW Standards as Family Law Nears Series High, WWE SmackDown Rises, Tough as Nails Ticks Up (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: 'Family Law' (0.07) had a strong return on The CW and was only two-hundredths below its series high. At 9, 'Moonshine' (0.04) had a passable launch by the network's standards. Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.76, +0.07) climbed some more and posted a rating that was 230% higher than the program in second place. CBS's 'Tough as Nails' (0.23, +0.04) grew a bit from its meager, Sunday-night premiere (0.19). Reruns of 'Fire Country' (0.14) and 'Blue Bloods' (0.15) followed 'Nails'. NBC aired repeats of 'Hot Wheels: Ultimate Challenge' (0.18) and 'Dateline' (0.23). ABC beat out NBC in the 8 p.m. time slot with a rerun of 'Will Trent' (0.20), but they lost out to the peacock network at 9 since their encore of '20/20' (0.19) trailed 'Dateline'.

Finals Update: 'WWE SmackDown' (+0.1) adjusted up.
