CBS got some relief from freshman flop "Ransom" with a massive football game, Texans at Patriots (8.2), easily dominating.

Elsewhere, Fox had an NFL-boosted repeat of Lethal Weapon (1.6) which managed to beat out a couple of originals, including Wednesday's episode, but the NFL boost was mostly gone by 9pm for the Star repeat (0.6), but it still squashed last week's which managed just a 0.3. 

NBC had repeats of Dateline NBC (0.7) and Saturday Night Live (0.7), both were off just a tenth from Friday's Grimm/Emerald City line-up and the Dateline repeat managed to match Friday's original.

ABC had more game show repeats with To Tell The Truth (0.4) and Match Game (0.5/0.5).
