In the wake of a 13-episode Season 2 pickup, "Hannibal" stayed in line with its typical ratings -- it also is a show boosted considerably by viewers who watch within three or seven days of the show airing.

Elsewhere, "Rookie Blue" and "Motive" each lost less than 200,000 viewers from their premieres a week ago, while NBC's "Save Me" dipped from 3 million viewers for its premiere last week to 2.6 million.

Reruns and the "Mike & Molly" finale won the night for CBS, which earned 6.9 million viewers and a 4.6 rating/8 share in households. ABC was second at 5.3 million, 3.5/6, followed by FOX at 3.8 million, 2.4/4, NBC at 2.3 million, 1.6/3 and the CW at 1.27 million, 0.8/1.

In the adults 18-49 demo, FOX's reality shows won with a 1.5, followed by CBS at 1.4, ABC at 1.2, NBC at 0.8 and the CW at 0.4.
