CBS decided to burn off the final two episodes of Candy Crush on Saturday (0.2/0.3). The show was a ratings catastrophe on Sunday nights, so it's not surprising that it went this low. It led into 1 hour of 48 Hours (0.3).

ABC had a massive college football game (3.3/4.1/4.0) that hit numbers that the alphabet network likely won't ever see for any of their scripted programs.

Fox's college football game (0.5/0.4/0.5) couldn't hold a candle to ABC's.

NBC had an AGT repeat (0.4/0.5) followed by a Dateline original (0.5).
