- Major League Baseball's quest to singlehandedly dismantle Fox's season continued, as yet another rain-delayed American League Championship Series game bled into primetime and bumped higher-rated The X Factor off the schedule. (It's now scheduled to air on Sunday, but the way things are going for Fox, the ALCS will probably go 7 games and bump that one too.)
- The night's only really good news came on ABC, where Suburgatory stabilized in week three while Happy Endings and Revenge were both up double digits. For Suburgatory and Revenge, at least, these showings
should beUPDATE: WERE! full-season clinchers, and it's a new series high for Happy Endings even after its drop in finals. Revenge actually edged the fading CSI for its first 10/9c victory since premiere Wednesday.
- Nobody else meaningfully benefited from the lack of X. Survivor ended up gaining just a tick while Up All Night actually dropped a couple.
- Two networks replaced cancelled shows for the first time; the Ringer encore basically matched last week's H8R r8ings while the Whitney encore actually did a lot better than the week-ago Free Agents (1.0).
