There were across-the-board adjustments versus Thursday's preliminary numbers due to local preemptions for NFL games in several markets as well as hurricane Irene coverage. The night's top show on broadcast, CBS's Big Brother was only adjusted down a tenth. ABC's Wipeout was adjusted down 0.3, Expedition Impossible 0.2 and Rookie Blue 0.1. That's it as far as originals, but there were across-the-board adjustments for the repeats on CBS, NBC and Fox, too.
