FOX:  EMPIRE is still a massive hit, but no longer superhuman.  It fell a considerable 0.4 last night to a new season low 4.2.  Lead-in ROSEWOOD was comparatively steady, down 0.1 to 1.4.

NBC:  A special edition of THE VOICE was inserted into the 8PM line-up at 2.4, doubling last week’s MYSTERIES OF LAURA score in that slot, and elevating SVU by half a point to 2.0.  The halo effect extended to CHICAGO PD, up 0.2 to 1.6.

ABC:  THE MIDDLE returned from its CMA break steady at 2.0, and THE GOLDBERGS was down 0.1 to 2.1.  MODERN FAMILY, airing its first new episode in 3 weeks, was at 2.7, and BLACK-ISH held at 1.9.  NASHVILLE got no bump from the big plot development that ended its last episode, declining 0.1 to 1.0.

CBS:  SURVIVOR, CRIMINAL MINDS and CODE BLACK all rose 0.1, respectively to 2.1, 1.6 and 1.3.

CW:  ARROW fell 0.2 to 0.9 and SUPERNATURAL gained 0.1 to 0.7.

2 BROKE GIRLS has its belated season premiere tonight after MOM.  On cable, Lifetime launches the spin-off PROJECT RUNWAY JUNIOR.
