It was time for a comeback episode at Fox’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown, as some of the league’s biggest games and rivalries have been relived on a trip to the archives. Memories were good for a 0.6, which fought the demo wars of the night.
Up close on ABC, Friday’s winner was forever Shark aquarium, which was down one tick to 0.5 overnight. This slight hiccup did not affect the tail 20/20, which buzzed at a 0.4 for its story about the murder of a toddler.
At CBS, a replay of Kids say the craziest things succeeded the deceased MacGyver and drew a 0.3. This resulted in the rest of the network’s lineup, as the season finale of Magnum PI scored just 0.4 and 4.8 million viewers, with both figures taking the lift down.
Night closure Blue blood was also affected, shooting a 0.4. Although the show had the largest total audience of the evening, that number was down almost 10% from the previous week.
At NBC, the Raymond Reddington saga continues The blacklist, holding steady at 0.3 as viewers tire of Elizabeth Keen’s thongs. Newsmag Dateline fared slightly better, scoring 0.4 on his review of a murder in Michigan.
The CW saw a new Charm arrives at 0.4, with the start of the Dynasty reaching a minimum of 0.0 and 294k viewers.
