Friday night’s episode of Blue Bloods did make some news, but how did it do in the TV rating battle? Well, let’s take a look, Outsiders.
According to the data provided by TV Line, the Tom Selleck-starring police drama had 5.6 million viewers. It posted a 0.4 rating, which was a steady number in the demo. But the show dropped in viewership from last week.
SWAT was a rerun on Friday night, followed by new episodes of Magnum P.I. and Blue Bloods.
So, what did top the Friday night rating war? ABC’s 20/20 profiled Jennifer and Jordan Turpin, two sisters who suffered years of torture from their parents. It gained 7.1 million viewers and a 0.9 rating in the demo.
Blue Bloods’ Episode Features Erin Reagan Telling Frank About Running for DA
