However, ABC's freshman comedies appeared to be drawing more of those key young adults, as "The Goldbergs" increased 13% to a 1.7 and "Trophy Wife" rose 9% to a 1.2. In 18-49, a ratings point equals roughly 1.3 million viewers.
NBC finished prime time with a 2.5 rating in 18-49, barely beating its closest competitor, CBS, which drew a 2.4 and had the biggest total audience with an average of nearly 15.5 million.
Fox's comedy lineup was looking stronger last week in its post-World Series return, but this week wasn't so hot. "Dads" fell to its lowest rating ever (1.2), and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" tied its series low of 1.4.
