The “Annie” performance aired live for the east coast from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. It was tape-delayed to occupy the same primetime slot out west. While these early Nielsen numbers are always subject to some adjustment, the fact that “Annie” was not live coast-to-coast makes them a little less volatile.

Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin’s emotional ABC interview about the tragic occurrence on the set of his movie “Rust” drew 4.13 million total viewers from 8 to 9 p.m. With football on Fox and a strong performance from CBS’ comedies, the Baldwin interview came in fourth in total viewers.

Fox was first in ratings with a 2.9 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 11.3 million, according to preliminary numbers.

NBC was second in ratings with a 0.9 and in viewers with 5.2 million.

CBS was third in ratings with a 0.4 and in viewers with 4.7 million.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.3 and in viewers with 2.6 million.

The CW was fifth in ratings with a 0.1 and in viewers with 648,000.
