NBC:  SUNDAY NIGHT WITH MEGYN KELLY continued to decline, down 0.1 from last week to 0.4, and markedly behind 60 MINUTES.  The network followed it with some corporate synergy for its movie company, airing the original DESPICABLE ME at 0.6 a few days before the arrival of the sequel.  A rerun of LITTLE BIG SHOTS finished the night at 0.5.

ABC:  CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD was steady at 1.4, then FUNDERDOME was up 0.1 to 1.1, and THE $100,000 PYRAMID gained 0.2 to 1.1.  The night began with a 0.7 rerun of AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS.

FOX:  AMERICAN GRIT aired behind a set of 0.2-0.5 reruns, and fell 0.1 from last week (which followed US Open coverage) to 0.4.

CBS:  60 MINUTES rose 0.2 to 0.7, and was followed by 0.2-0.4 reruns.

AMC’s PREACHER concludes its 2-night season premiere in its regular timeslot tonight, while on ABC, the yanked STILL STAR-CROSSED is replaced by a CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD rerun.
