NBC’s “Shades of Blue” slipped from last week’s slow summer start, when ABC won another Sunday with its game shows. Sorry, J. Lo — not every series is “World of Dance.”

ABC was first in ratings with a 0.9 rating/4 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 5.2 million, according to preliminary numbers. Following a rerun, “Celebrity Family Feud” at 8 p.m. posted a 1.2/5 and 6.5 million viewers. At 9, “The $100,000 Pyramid” had a 1.0/4 and 5.6 million viewers. “To Tell the Truth” at 10 received a 0.8/4 and 4.5 million viewers.

NBC was second in ratings with a 0.6/3 and third in viewers with 3.6 million. “Dateline NBC” at 7 got a 0.5/2 and 3.5 million viewers. Following a repeat, “Shades of Blue” at 10 managed a 0.5/2 and 3.1 million viewers.

CBS was third in ratings with a 0.5/2 and second in viewers with 4.9 million. At 7, “60 Minutes” had a 0.6/3 and 7.4 million viewers. “Instinct” at 8 got a 0.5/2 and 5.6 million viewers. Reruns followed.

Fox was fourth in ratings with a 0.4/2 and in viewers with 1.1 million. After repeats, “Ghosted” at 9:30 settled for a 0.4/2 and 1.1 million viewers.

Univision and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.3/1. Univision was fifth in total viewers with 964,000; Telemundo was sixth with 710,000 viewers.

The CW does not currently nationally program Sunday nights.
