On NBC, a new episode of “Little Big Shots” (1.2, 7.9 million) was the top-rated show of the night. “Chicago Justice” (1.0, 5.3 million) was steady at 9 p.m., while “Shades of Blue” (0.7, 4.1 million) was down in the demo.

“60 Minutes” (0.9, 9.4 million) was up in both measures on CBS, while “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.0, 9 million) and “Madam Secretary” (0.7, 7.5 million) were steady. “Elementary” (0.6, 4.3 million) was up in the demo but down in total viewers.

For Fox, “Bob’s Burgers” (0.9, 2 million) improved at 7:30 p.m., while “The Simpsons” (1.0, 2.3 million) and “Making History” (0.6, 1.5 million) were steady. “The Last Man on Earth” aired back-to-back episodes at 9 (0.7, 1.8 million) and 9:30 (0.7, 1.8 million) for its Season 3 finale.

NBC and ABC tied for first in the demo with a 0.9, but NBC was ahead slightly in total viewers, finishing second with 5.3 million to ABC’s third with 5.2 million.
