CBS:  The TONY AWARDS had a preliminary 1.0, up 0.1 from 2017’s early number.  With the exception of the HAMILTON year, the Tonys have been fairly consistent over the past several years.  The night began with 60 MINUTES up 0.1 to 0.7.

ABC:  After 0.7 for a rerun AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS, it was a night of season premieres.  CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD returned up 0.2 to 1.7, THE $100,000 PYRAMID was steady at 1.2 (it aired at 10PM in 2017), and TO TELL THE TRUTH was at 0.9, which was up 0.3 from last year, but that was on a Wednesday with sitcom reruns at lead-ins.

FOX:  GHOSTED aired two previously unseen episodes at 0.4/0.4, heavily down from its in-season airings during football season.  The rest of the night featured reruns at 0.4-0.5.
