- The return of The Event pulled just a 1.4 demo, down 26% from where it ended 14 weeks ago. It didn't weather the hiatus storm nearly as well percentage-wise as last year's Flashforward and V, so maybe it'll have a "The hiatus killed us!" excuse a la Jericho, but only if it holds up from here. Either way, a 1.4 is not gonna be a renewable level. And Harry's Law was not helped a bit despite its smallest competition since its opening weeks and a slightly bigger lead-in.
- The winner at 10:00 was the Hawaii Five-0 repeat, hitting its outright highest repeat numbers yet, even beating last week's repeat which had a much bigger lead-in with a Mike & Molly original. Elsewhere on CBS, week four of Mad Love dropped three more ticks with HIMYM in repeats.

Will probably develop more disclaimers if this develops further, but the one that jumps out for now is that the stats in blue will be less accurate because for now I'm counting every program as if it maintains that same rating throughout each half-hour of the broadcast. That is almost always not the case in reality.
