NETWORK FINALS:  Once the CBS numbers were scrubbed of their NFL overrun, 60 MINUTES dropped half a point to 2.6, NCIS: LA and ELEMENTARY each shed 0.1, and MADAM SECRETARY remained unchanged.  SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL itself adjusted to 6.2 for NBC, although that was down a big 1.5 from the previous week’s final number.  In addition, both the 7:30PM BOB’S BURGERS and FAMILY GUY gained 0.1.
