Subsequently, the NBC series dipped two-tenths to a 2.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demo.
However, that still helped NBC easily take the night.
At 8 p.m., the Hurricane Harvey telethon pulled a combined 2.7 rating in the demo across NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox. The hourlong special amassed 15.7 million viewers across the Big Four.
The only other new show of the evening, Somewhere Between (0.3 adults) was flat for ABC.
