Elsewhere, Fox’s SmackDown (2 mil/0.5) was down a tick, and NBC’s Baking It (2.2 mil/0.3) was right on par with the latest The Wall.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Kids, ask parents before calling.
