Here are the highlights of the 18 ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night:

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to live NFL coverage, Fast Nationals are approximate for FOX from 7-8p and for NBC for the night. Due to local NFL overrun until roughly 7:30p in at least 12% of the country, Fast Nationals for CBS are approximate on the night.]
