Secrets & Lies followed, after a whole season of not airing since its first season. It returned to a 1.0, down from both the previous season premiere, 1.3, and finale, 1.8. Finally, Quantico returned to a 1.0, flat with its first season finale, and down from the 1.9 of its series premiere.

On FOX, a rerun of Family Guy at 7:00 scored a 1.1. Then, the season premiere of Bob's Burgers got a 1.3, up from the 1.0 of its previous season finale and from the 1.2 of its previous season premiere. The Simpsons earned a 1.6, up from last season's finale, at 1.1, and premiere, at 1.5. Son of Zorn earned a 1.2, way down from its first airing, which got a large football lead-in. It was also down from the season premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in that timeslot a year ago, which earned a 1.5. Family Guy scored a 1.4, up from its season finale's 1.2, and down from the 1.5 of its previous season premiere. The Last Man on Earth earned a 0.9, flat with its previous season finale, but down from its previous season premiere, which earned a 1.4. These numbers could potentially be inflated due to football overrun.

On CBS, football ran over by almost an hour, and in that hour it scored a 5.4. 60 Minutes then earned a 2.3, and NCIS: Los Angeles started out its Sunday airing with two-hour premiere and a 1.4. which would make it up from the 1.3 of its previous season finale and the 1.2 of its previous season premiere.
