CBS’ summertime surprise drew 10.6 million total viewers while scoring a 2.7 demo rating — again besting its broadcast competitors combined, yet down 10 percent and two tenths week-to-week and now off some 20 percent from its boffo debut.
Elsewhere in the 10 o’clock time slot, ABC’s Mistresses (4 mil/1.2) rose 11 percent and a tenth, while NBC’s Siberia (2.7 mil/1.0) slipped 13 percent and a tenth.
