THE CW | Charmed (670K/0.2) and Dynasty (380K/0.1) each added a few eyeballs while steady in the demo.

FOX | Friday Night Smackdown (2.7 mil/0.8) ticked up, topping Friday in the demo.

ABC | Now back on Fridays, Shark Tank (4 mil/0.7) improved on both its Sunday average (3.2 mil/0.6) as well as what the American Housewife/Fresh Off the Boat combo had been averaging (2.9 mil/0.5) in the time slot.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our daily-ish ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increases in delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms. These Live+Same Day numbers instead are used to illustrate any trends or high/low superlatives. Happy Fun Ball may stick to certain types of skin.
