CBS's preseason football game (1.2) was easily the strongest program of the night and was a significant improvement over the network's drama repeat lineup.

At 10, ABC's 20/20 (0.8) was up a tenth of a point from its last result and tied NBC's Dateline (0.8).


Fox decided to go with 2 hours of MasterChef (0.6) and did not air their usual Beat Shazam repeat.


The CW had their typical mix of magic show repeats and originals (0.3/0.3/0.3).
