Friday TV Ratings 9/1/23: Family Law Rises for Finale, WWE SmackDown Drops but Remains Easily in First, Secret Celebrity Renovation Ties Season Low (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Legal drama 'Family Law' (0.03/0.04) improved on last week's 0.02 rating for its two-hour finale on the CW. Though this is not much of a recovery for 'Law', up is up. Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.65, -0.13) lost a little more than a tenth, but the wrestling series was still 3x higher than its nearest competitor in the Adults 18-49 demographic. 'Secret Celebrity Renovation' (0.17, -0.01) shed a hundredth on CBS after taking a week off. The program tied the season low it set on premiere night and led into reruns of 'Fire Country' (0.11) and 'Blue Bloods' (0.15). NBC's 'America's Got Talent' encore (0.21) handily beat ABC's 'Will Trent' (0.14) repeat in the 8 p.m. hour. However, the spoils went to ABC in the 9 p.m. hour as '20/20' (0.21) pulled ahead of 'Dateline' (0.20).

Finals Update: All shows held their preliminary rounded rating.
