· From 10: 30-11 p.m. ET, a encore telecast of "Go On" (1.8/5 in adults 18-49, 5.0 million viewers overall) also benefitted from solid sampling, as the rebroadcast matched the combined results of encore competition on ABC and CBS in 18-49 (1.8 vs. a 1.0 for CBS's encore comedies and 0.8 for ABC's rebroadcast "Castle).

· The "Go On" encore led the half-hour among ABC, CBS and NBC in every key category.
