Fox's 'MasterChef' (0.36, -0.06) and 'So You Think You Can Dance' (0.23, -0.06) lost six-hundredths apiece, with 'Dance' sinking to a brand-new series low. NBC's repeats of 'Chicago Med' (0.26), 'Chicago Fire' (0.34), and 'Chicago PD' (0.37) all improved on a week-to-week basis. 'Mysteries Decoded' (0.03, -0.02) dipped on the CW while 'Wellington Paranormal' (0.02, 0.00) and the 'Wellington' rerun (0.02) held steady.
