Saving Hope was adjusted down three tenths, Rock Center and Rookie Blue were adjusted down two tenths and Big Brother and Time Machine Chefs were adjusted down a single tenth among adults 18-49 versus the preliminary Thursday broadcast ratings. The Final numbers for FOX's NFL Preseason Football coverage is also below. The large volume of adjustments to CBS and NBC programming is likely due to a large volume of local market football pre-emptions.
