  1. Definitely thought The Masked Singer would be much higher looks like it might’ve already peaked wouldn’t be too surprised if it declines as the fall goes on. CBS had a nice night but down from last year. Nice night for the Chicago shows despite the strong competition they were rock solid from start to finish NBC is so lucky to have them. Very bad night for the ABC comedies as I thought The Goldbergs and Modern Family would be way higher than that and Schooled and Single Parents looks like they should’ve never been renewed. Stumptown did okay but with SWAT returning next week it’s gonna go down.
