Airing at 10 p.m., “Shades of Blue’s” Season 3 opener averaged a 0.6 ranking in people 18-49 and 3.5 million viewers.

On ABC, “Celebrity Family Feud” (1.1, 5.8 million) and “The $100,000 Pyramid” (0.9, 5.1 million) were both down. “To Tell the Truth” (0.8, 3.9 million) organised steady.
CBS aired mainly repeats aside from a new episode of “Instinct” (0.4, 5.3 million), that was down in both measures.
Fox aired repeats except for the special “One Bizarre Rock” (0.5, 1.9 million) and a fresh episode of “Ghosted” (0.5,1.3 million), that was up.
