Since this isn't a brand new series, The Night Shift's premiere probably won't be as inflated as most of the shows in the left column. Beyond that, I saw little during the summer to indicate the series was nearly as strong as even the Chicago series, much less previous occupant The Blacklist. But I think this lead-in still gets The Night Shift to a series high by a fairly comfortable margin.
