It was supposed to be farewell for Blue Bloods last night. But it’s merely adieu, as the long-running CBS family crime drama is returning for yet another season.

The two-hour season finale drew the night’s top audience, tying for the demo lead with an 0.5 for both its hourly segments, and scoring the biggest audience of the evening with 6.82 million viewers for its second hour.

The family drama was also first in adults 25-54 (0.9) and adults 18-49 (0.5).

That carried the night for CBS to an overall network victory. That despite the weak lead-in from the news special The Queen Carries On, which eked out an 0.2.

CBS’s first-run dramas have won Friday in viewers every week this season (17 consecutive wins).

Elsewhere, ABC’s Shark Tank, the perennial Friday night champ, scored an 0.5. The night’s big winners were two entrepreneurs who parlayed their floating grill into a deal.

At NBC, The Blacklist continued steady at an 0.3, as the intrigue around Elizabeth and Red Reddington continued to dance.

Fox’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown came in at an 0.4 for its WrestleMania Backlash go-home edition of SmackDown. In the main event, Cesaro clashed with Jimmy Uso in Uso’s first match in well over a year.

Finally, the CW saw Charmed and Dynasty both at an 0.1, but both up majorly after last week in total audience.

Newsmags 20/20 (ABC) and Dateline (NBC) have not yet reported their numbers.

Ratings: Blue Bloods Rises With Finale, Dominates Friday in Viewers

May 15, 2021

In the latest TV show ratings, Blue Bloods‘ two-hour Season 11 finale averaged 6.5 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating, ticking up from last week to easily cop Friday’s biggest audience (as it does) while tying for the nightly demo win.

TVLine readers gave Blue Bloods‘ finale — which apparently was ready to be a series finale, if need be — an average grade of “A.”

Opening CBS’ night, Gayle King’s special about the queen drew 3.5 mil and a  0.2.

Elsewhere:

ABC | Shark Tank (3.4 mil/0.5) was steady, tying Blue Bloods for the demo win.

NBC |  The Blacklist (3 mil/0.3) was steady.

FOX | Friday Night SmackDown (1.8 mil/0.4) slipped to its lowest numbers in a while. (Sorry, my abacus is in the shop.)

THE CW | Charmed (693K/0.1) and Dynasty (571K/0.1) both saw a meaningful uptick in viewers (was there a ballgame last night somewhere?), with the latter improving on last week’s 0.0 rating.

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. Happy Fun Ball may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds.
