- For the second straight week, the cancelled guys flexed a little muscle, with The Event up a solid 23% in its series finale to its best numbers since before its long hiatus and The Chicago Code cracking the 2.0 mark for the first time in 2.5 months. Will this be enough to get some other network interested? I'm not absolutely ruling it out, but I should note that this was the weakest competition either of them ever faced.
- Minute to Win It was another weak show to suddenly put up its best numbers in months. Perhaps this at least demonstrates the already-renewed show can pull a reasonable filler number if it's kept away from American Idol.
- The Bachelorette was even with last season's two-hour premiere, but that was leading out of a much stronger year-to-year Dancing with the Stars. DWTS dominated the evening and was slightly above average despite airing for just one hour.
