Comparably, that slipped by a hefty 56 percent from lead-in “Big Brother” (#2: 3.8/ 7 from 8-9 p.m.). Last week it opened with a 2.4/ 4 in the household overnights.

Over at NBC, recent newsmagazine entry “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” (#3: 2.3/ 5 at 7 p.m.) continues to trail competing “60 Minutes” on CBS (#1: 4.5/ 9).
