The two-hour "Sleepy Hollow" finale on FOX saw a rise of nearly half a million viewers over last week's new episode plus it earned FOX a win in the 18-49 demo, while the premiere of "Hollywood Game Night" Season 2 on NBC earned a series-high 4.7 million viewers. The second episode fell slightly, but was still the second-highest episode of the show after the Season 2 premiere.

Elsewhere, "Intelligence"  fell a bit more after its big drop off between the premiere and the second episode, now earning less than 6 million viewers. In that time period, "Castle" leap-frogged over "The Blacklist" to take the top spot, although the NBC show still led in adults 18-49.

On ABC, "The Bachelor" was steady with its numbers from last week and it helped propel the alphabet network to a win.

ABC averaged 8.2 million viewers and a 5.4 rating/8 share in households to lead the night, followed by CBS at 7.6 million and a 4.8/7. FOX was third (6.9 million, 4.1/6), NBC was fourth (5.9 million, 3.7/6) and The CW was fifth (1.06 million, 0.7/1).

In the adults 18-49 demo, FOX led with a 2.3, followed by ABC (2.2), CBS (2.0), NBC (1.7) and The CW (0.4).
