Ratings: Miami Is Hot, Detroit… Not

DETROIT 1-8-7 -  "Blackout" - Fitch's past comes back to haunt him when his old New York nemesis, Albert Stram, makes his presence known in Detroit just as the veteran detective is enjoying spending time with his son, Bobby. Stram's not so subtle threats shake the usually unflappable Fitch. Meanwhile, the other detectives are called to the scene of a horrific homicide to find an entire family brutally murdered. Fitch tries to put the pieces of the puzzle together and it leads him to a devastating conclusion. With his back against the wall, Fitch asks Washington to protect Bobby, then leads Longford and Mahajan on an extremely dangerous mission to trap Stram; but which side of the law will he come down on in order to save his family and those in the squad? Meanwhile, Longford has second thoughts about his retirement; but is it too late? It's a crucial turning point in the lives of all the detectives, on the Season Finale of "Detroit 1-8-7," SUNDAY, MARCH 20 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/ALICIA GBUR)
TOMMY FLANAGAN, MICHAEL IMPERIOLI, VADIM IMPERIOLI

ABC Gives Body Of Proof Tuesday Slot

BODY OF PROOF - Brilliant and driven neurosurgeon Dr. Megan Hunt had it all, or so she thought. As the first female Head of Neurosurgery at a prominent Philadelphia university hospital, she never appreciated how the demands of her profession were taking a toll on her personal life until her husband divorced her and she lost custody of their then seven-year-old daughter. Still reeling from this emotional trauma, Megan soon suffered a physical one, a car accident that left her with a condition called paresthesia -- random attacks of numbness and cramping of her hands. Tragically, this condition failed to manifest itself until Megan's first trip back to the operating room. She lost control of her instruments and her patient died on the table. Megan's life as a neurosurgeon was over. (ABC/CLAIRE FOLGER)
