The CW's new medical drama Emily Owens, M.D. debuted to a 0.5 rating with both 18-49s and the net's targeted adults 18-34 demo (it should be noted that it went head-to-head with the presidential debate). Earlier, Hart of Dixie was up a tenth from last week in both demos to a 0.6 for each. The network finished with an overall 0.5/1.
ABC's Dancing With the Stars results show, which moved to 8 p.m. due to the presidential debate, was down a tenth from last week to a 2.1. ABC took second for the night with a 2.5/6.
CBS was in repeats during the 8 p.m. hour and finished with a 1.9/5.
