TVLine readers gave the powerful hour an average grade of “A+” (read post mortem).

Leading out of that, a double pump of FBI: Most Wanted did 9 mil/0.9 (its second-best numbers of the season) and then 7.3 mil/0.8.

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.
