NBC | Little Big Shots (6 mil/0.7) and this week’s Marlon twofer (averaging 2.8 mil and a 0.6) were steady.
ABC | The Gong Show (3.2 mil/0.5), Match Game (3.6 mil/0.7) and Week 2 of Take Two (3.1 mil/0.5) were all steady in the demo.
FOX | The Four (2.6 mil/0.8) ticked up to mark season highs in both measures.
