The NFL pre-game got a 0.8 on ABC and Bills-Niners, on both ESPN and ABC, got a 1.3 on the broadcast net.

NBC got a 0.6/4 and CBS a 0.5/3. NBC had The Voice at 0.8 across two hours, mostly flat with last week’s 0.9 and 0.8, and the premiere of Nurses at 0.4. 

On CBS, The Neighborhood got a 0.7 and Bob Hearts Abishola a 0.6, both level with last week. All Rise lost 20% for a 0.4 and a Bull rerun closed out prime. 

Univision scored a 0.4/2 and Telemundo a 0.3/2. Univision had Vencer El Desamor at 0.5 and Imperios de Mentiras and Dulce Ambicion at 0.3s. Vencer and Dulce were flat and Imperios lost a tenth.
