FOX won the night in demos, while CBS drew more total viewers.
Hell's Kitchen rose a healthy 17% from its last new episode, although it does have considerably less big-time competition at this point. The series premiere of ethically questionable reality series Does Someone Have To Go? only managed a 1.3 demo, which is okay enough for Summer, but I doubt it lasts long.
ABC's Wipeout rose 20% from last week's series low. The Thursday premiere of Motive dropped a tenth from Monday's debut. The season premiere of Rookie Blue was down two tenths from season three's premiere, and now sits as the lowest rated premiere in series history.
The series premiere of NBC's long-delayed Save Me brought in a measly 0.7, as did a second episode immediately following. 2012 summer drama Saving Hope drew similar numbers. In very sad news for Hannibal fans, the good doctor's demos fell back down to the series' previous low of 1.0. The fact that the numbers still went down with so little competition at 10pm is worrying.
