On its first telecast in three weeks and moving into its new 8-9 PM time period, ABC’s Black Box returned up in total viewers (4.0 million vs. 3.8 million) and paced within 1/10th in adults 18-49 (0.7/3 vs. 0.8/2). ABC’s Rookie Blue returned at 9 PM with demo ratings down 17% from last summer’s premiere, but held steady in the demo compared to its September season wrapper. Rookie Blue beat its drama competitor in the hour, Fox’s Gang Related, in the demo (1.0/3 vs. 0.9/3) and total viewers (5.7 million vs. 2.6 million)  The ABC drama also tied for No. 1 in its time period among Adults 25-54 (1.4/3).
