In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s SmackDown was No. 1 in the demo while CBS’ Blue Bloods and Fire Country veritably tied for the night’s biggest audience.

CBS | SWAT (5 mil/0.4), Fire Country (5.46 mil/0.4) and Blue Bloods (5.47 mil/0.3) all dipped, with the latter matching series lows (set last Dec. 2) as it awaits word on renewal … or otherwise [cue ominous thunderclap].
NBC | Lopez vs. Lopez (1.9 mil/0.2) was steady, while Grand Crew (1.1 mil/0.1) slipped to new lows.
ABC | Shark Tank (3.5 mil/0.3) hit what appears to be an all-time demo low.
THE CW | Whose Line (520K/0.1) added some viewers.
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.
