FOX:  After MASTERCHEF JR’s steady 1.4, HELL’S KITCHEN arrived at 1.1 after a Tuesday run last season.

NBC:  UNDATEABLE, the SUPERSTORE rerun and DATELINE stayed at 0.8, 0.6 and 1.2 respectively.

CBS:  UNDERCOVER BOSS (1.1), HAWAII 5-0 (1.3) and BLUE BLOODS (1.3) were each down 0.1.

CW:  REIGN is currently up 0.1 to 0.4, although it was preempted for basketball in Chicago, so that number should shift.  At the moment, a PENN & TELLER: FOOL US rerun is also at 0.4.

Tonight’s Green Bay vs. Arizona NFL PLAYOFFS game on NBC will crush the reruns on the other networks.  (It will also push SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE to at least a midnight start for an episode featuring Kylo Ren Adam Driver and musical guest Chris Stapleton.
