Friday TV Ratings 10/20/23: Shark Tank Hits New Low, WWE SmackDown Slips, Raid the Cage Rises (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Friday staples 'Shark Tank' (0.32, -0.05) and '20/20' (0.24, -0.05) both slipped to new season lows on ABC. Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.59, -0.03) lost a few ticks but still held the #1 spot in the 18-49 demographic. 'The Price Is Right At Night' (0.33, +0.05) and 'Raid the Cage' (0.27, +0.02) were up on CBS, but a special on the Israel-Hamas War (0.15) went below the week-ago 'Blue Bloods' rerun (0.19). NBC's 'Dateline' (0.23, -0.06) declined significantly when compared to last week, likely due to its lead-in being a meager 'Magnum PI' encore (0.15) instead of the much stronger Pinkett-Smith special (0.31) that aired on the 13th. Reruns of 'FBoy Island' (0.06/0.06) performed shockingly well by the CW's standards.

Finals Update: 'WWE SmackDown' (+0.1) and 'Raid the Cage' (+0.1) adjusted up.
