Here are the highlights of the 19 ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (9/23/12):

[EDITOR'S NOTE #1: Due to the nature of live programming, Fast Nationals for FOX (from 7-730p), ABC, CBS and NBC are approximate. On CBS, the NFL Overrun ran until approximately 8:07p with entertainment prime sliding.]

[EDITOR'S NOTE #2: The Emmy Awards aired live across the country and the time-period based Fast Affiliate Ratings are inaccurate, since they don't include pre-prime viewing in the Pacific and Mountain time zones. ABC has ordered true Fast Nationals from Nielsen, which will account for the pre-prime viewing and be sent out later this morning in a press release.]
