- The Bachelorette (2.1) dropped a stout 25% from its post-Dancing premiere last week and was 16% below last year's first "on its own" episode. Not a good start for this season. But the news at 10/9c was better as Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (2.3) launched pretty well.
- Law & Order: CI (1.1) in its "new to NBC" premiere was three-tenths behind the same episode's premiere on USA 29 days prior but a tick ahead of last summer's "new to NBC" premiere. Law & Order: LA (1.4) perked up to its highest number since May 2.
