With big numbers for a Sunday Night Football preseason game featuring the Bengals and the Cowboys and the finale for The Bachelorette and related coverage, FOX's Hell's Kitchen was pushed to fifth for the week with adults 18-49.

The NFL preseason game won out easily with adults 18-49, with more than half million more 18-49ers watching football, but the Bachelorette won out with total viewers by almost 300,000.

A rerun of The Big Bang Theory at #9 was the top scripted performer with adults 18-49, and a repeat of NCIS with nearly 9 million viewers was the top scripted offering for all viewers.
