Ratings: WWE, Blue Bloods Lead Friday

·1 min read

In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s SmackDown led Friday in the demo, while CBS’ Blue Bloods and Fire Country copped the night’s biggest audiences.

CBS | SWAT (with 4.8 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating), Fire Country (5.1 mil/0.4) and the newly renewed Blue Bloods (5.2 mil/0.3) each lost some eyeballs while holding steady in the demo. Of note, Fire Country matched its smallest audience thus far while Blue Bloods hit an all-time audience low — though both shows apparently were preempted in some markets by weather and related news coverage.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. This is only an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please, no wagering.
