Fox’s two-hour The Four: Battle for Stardom (0.9, 2.80M) returned to originals, equaling its prior first-run broadcast.

ABC’s original lineup lost 1/10th 8 and 9 PM with The Gong Show (0.5, 2.96M) and The Match Game (0.6, 3.49M).  At 10 PM Take Two (0.5, 2.80M) ticked up 1/10th.

CBS took the night in both metrics (1.0, 4.638M), followed by Fox (0.8, 2.801M) in the demo and NBC (0.6, 3.663M) in total viewers. ABC (0.5, 3.081M) followed, then CW (0.2, 745K), which aired repeats of Supernatural  (0.2, 850K) and Black Lightning (0.2, 650K).
