NBC:  With a 2.6 lead-in from THE VOICE (down 0.1 from last week), CHICAGO MED had a solid start at 2.2, the strongest show in its hour by a considerable margin.  However, it still gave CHICAGO FIRE a lower lead-in than THE VOICE had provided last week, and FIRE was down 0.1 to 1.9.

CBS:  NCIS fell 0.2 to 2.1, and both NCIS: NEW ORLEANS and LIMITLESS were down 0.1 respectively to 1.6 and 1.4.
