Telemundo got a lift from Sin Senos Si Hay Paraiso (0.6) and El Senor de los Cielos (0.7), the former flat and the latter up a tenth.

ABC and CBS both rated a 0.5/2. ABC had repeated comedies before The Last Defense at a flat 0.4.

CBS aired drama reruns.

Univision did a 0.4/2.

The CW scored a 0.2/1. The 100 went up 50% to 0.3 and The Outpost lost 50% for a 0.1.
