On CBS, “NCIS” (1.4, 12.5 million) was even. “Bull” (1.1, 9 million) was down in total viewers. “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9, 7.9 million) was down in both measures.

For Fox, “Lethal Weapon” (1.0, 3.9 million), “The Mick” (0.7, 2.2 million), and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (0.6, 1.7 million) were all even.

For The CW, “The Flash” (0.8, 2.2 million) was down in both measures, while “Legends of Tomorrow” (0.5, 1.5 million) was even.
