ABC's Once Upon a Time may just have stopped bleeding viewers.
ABC: Once Upon a Time (4.6 million/1.3 rating) swelled two tenths. The Presidential Debate (9.9 million/2.9 rating) and Analysis (7.4 million/2.1 rating) closed the night for the alphabet network.
CBS: 60 Minutes (12.4 million/2.6 rating) perked up. The Debate (14.8 million/3.8 rating) and Analysis (10.7 million/2.8 rating) aired in the rest of CBS' primetime schedule.
NBC: The Sunday Night Football numbers are not yet available, but it led the way in the metered market ratings.
Fox: An original episode of The Simpsons (3.4 million/1.5 rating) led into an encore of Son of Zorn (2.4 million/1.0 rating). The Presidential Debate (4.8 million/1.8 rating) was pretty weak compared to the other networks.
