(R) = repeat

ABC's 'NBA' game (1.2) was two-tenths below last week. 'NBA Countdown' (0.7) was actually up a notch.

CBS had repeats of 'NCIS' (0.4) and 'SEAL Team' (0.4). '48 Hours' wrapped up the night with an atypical 0.5 at 10.

NBC had repeats of already-renewed 'Will & Grace' (0.3) and 'Superstore' (0.5). An original 'Dateline' (0.8) and 'SNL Vintage' (0.7) had high-end results. At 11:30, 'SNL' with host Will Ferrell (2.3) was up a whopping five-tenths from last week. It also registered as a new season high for the variety series.

FOX's 'UFC Fight Night' (0.5) did a bit better than 'Four' and drama repeats.
