On a night where over 80 million people tuned into the Presidential debates on multiple networks, it was only the 8pm hour that was worth noting for entertainment purposes. The schedule varied depending on what part of the country but the 8pm shows had generally good weeks. Whether there was pre-debate tune-in or this is a good sign, we'll see next week. On NBC, The Voice was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. NBC's debate coverage also easily led the broadcast networks. CBS saw The Big Bang Theory drop 1.6 million viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's season premiere but there was a great week two performance for Kevin Can Wait, which was down half a million viewers and actually up a tenth in the demo. Make no mistake, this was a great performance but next week will be a truer test without the debate craziness. On ABC, Dancing with the Stars was up a tenth in viewers and the demo. Finally on FOX, Gotham was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It was a series low in total viewers and tied a series low in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Kevin Can Wait (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Gotham (FOX)
