Fox edged out NBC
for third with a 1.7/5. Following a Simpsons repeat, Bob's Burgers
was down 20% to a 1.6. Family Guy returned from a week off down 11% to a
2.5, while American Dad was even with a 2.0.
NBC finished with
a 1.6/4. A three-hour Celebrity Apprentice drew a 1.8, which was flat with last week and
