The Hall of Fame game between the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys drew a 6.7 overnight household rating, down a tenth from NBC's first preseason game last year. Final numbers will be released later Monday.

CBS was in second with a 1.3/4. Unforgettable dipped 8% from last week's premiere to a series-low 1.2. Big Brother was down 4% to a 2.2.

The premiere of ABC's Secret Millionaire drew a 1.2, down 20% from last summer's debut. Whodunnit fell 9% to a 1.0. ABC took fourth, behind Fox's repeats.
