    Not surprising for Keep It Spotless for last night, given everything going on, though you’d think that because of the different demographics, it wouldn’t matter.

    In other news, both Splitting Up Together and The Kids Are Alright have received full season orders.

    ESPN did very well with its primetime college basketball. Seems like the election night didn’t make a dent.
