"Mistresses" followed with a 0.8 rating and 3 million viewers,

"Spartan" also retained 100% of last week's premiere rating and topped its competition in the 10 p.m. hour.

ABC was close behind NBC for the night with a 1.6 in adults 18-49 and 5.7 million watchers, leaving a sizable gap between the two nets and their competitors.
