- CBS bumping the Rules of Engagement premiere from the evening took away some of the lustre, but it was still a somewhat bustling Saturday as ABC's well below average Saturday Night Football (1.8) between Ohio State and Nebraska barely edged the rain-delayed opener of the baseball American League Championship Series (1.7) in terms of overall program ratings. However, the ALCS was stronger during primetime, meaning its number was dragged way down by the long out-of-primetime delay. Hence the higher TRUE for the baseball game (as those are based on primetime-only numbers).
- If you're looking for something that bodes well for How to Be a Gentleman's return to originals next Saturday, I guess you can point to the strong performance from this Saturday's debut of "Comedytime" encores, as Mike and Molly (1.1) and 2 Broke Girls (1.2) did better than most of CBS' "Crimetime" encores do at 8/7c.
