Finals Update: A repeat of Salvation (0.4) adjusted down on CBS. 

It was a below-average Friday night as both 'What Would You Do?' (0.6) and 'Dateline' (0.7) fell two-tenths from their last results. Despite the drops, both shows were even on a year-to-year basis. While 'What Would You Do?' had the same-sized 'Shark Tank' repeat lead-in as last week (0.7), 'Dateline' had a reduced 'AGT' repeat lead-in (0.7). At 10, ABC's '20/20' (0.6) was steady with last week and couldn't rise despite focusing on OJ Simpson

Outside of the alphabet and peacock networks, CBS had repeats of 'MacGyver' (0.5) and 'Blue Bloods' (0.5) at 8 and 10 respectively but preempted 'Hawaii Five-0' in favor of a 'Salvation' pilot encore (0.5). 'Salvation' fit right in and was surprisingly only two-tenths lower than its disappointing Wednesday premiere.

FOX had its normal cooking show/game show repeat lineup (0.5/0.4).


The CW had an original 'Masters of Illusion' (0.2) leading into a repeat of itself (0.2) and 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.2). The latter replaced 'Riverdale' repeats since the network pulled them after hitting low ratings.
