CBS had one of the night's only other original outings, the second episode of Dogs in the City. The reality series dropped 31 percent from last week's modest debut, pulling just a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49. Encores of Criminal Minds and CSI fared better, giving the network an average 1.2 demo rating and 5.8 million viewers for the night.
ABC's comedy repeats (1.0 rating among adults 18-49; 3.2 million viewers) just barely topped NBC's own encores (0.9 adults rating; 3.8 million viewers) of Off Their Rockers, Up All Night and two outings of Law & Order: SVU. The CW was in repeats with America's Next Top Model, earning a 0.3 demo rating for the night.
