It was, in fact, a series low in the key demo for "America's Got Talent," while "Extant" and "Taxi Brooklyn" only dipped overall, but were flat in the key demo.
FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance" was down in both measures.
On the slightly-more-positive side, CBS' "Big Brother" added a few viewers, as did The CW's "Penn & Teller: Fool Us."
All of the gains and declines are pretty much within the margin of typical variation, though.
