- CBS' comedy repeats (1.3/1.1) and upticking Big Brother (1.8) helped boost the final night of CBS 10/9c Democratic National Convention coverage (0.8) to its highest rating of the week, and competitive with the coverage on ABC (0.7) and NBC (0.9).
- Those other DNC telecasts had much less lead-in help. On ABC, BattleBots (0.8) tried to keep its hat in the ring, getting a tick back after last week's big drop, but Greatest Hits (0.6) kept moving in the wrong direction. NBC featured a repeat of Running Wild (0.7) and the original return of Hollywood Game Night (0.7), which had been pulled from the schedule after getting some 0.7's on Sundays in March.
- Elsewhere, Fox unloaded two more hours of Home Free (0.6/0.5), and will do the same to wrap up the run next week. The CW's Legends of Tomorrow repeat (0.3) is preliminarily threatening to end an eight-week streak of 0.2's, but Beauty and the Beast (0.2) is not.
