NETWORK FINALS:  It was an extremely bad night for ABC on the adjustments front (perhaps there were local sports or other preemptions), as DESIGNATED SURVIVOR and the BLACK-ISH rerun each fell 0.2, and the reruns of THE MIDDLE, THE GOLDBERGS and MODERN FAMILY each lost 0.1.  The other networks were unchanged.
