UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 150 Friday Cable Originals & Network Finals: 8.9.2019

 

 

 

 

NETWORK FINALS:  Note that the WE DAY special must have run without commercials, and thus it wasn’t included in Nielsen’s final ratings.  As expected, there were a slew of adjustments for the night, mostly attributable to NFL PRESEASON games.  The following shows dropped 0.2 from their preliminary ratings:  the reruns of MASTERCHEF and AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR.  These shows dropped 0.1:  MASTERS OF ILLUSION, DATELINE and the reruns of BH90210, HAWAII 5-0 and BLUE BLOODS.
