Elsewhere, NBC burned-off two episodes each of canceled sitcoms “A.P. Bio” and “Abby’s” from 8-10 p.m. Fox’s failing revival of “Paradise Hotel” averaged a mere 1.3/ 2 in households from 8-10 p.m. The CW’s combination of dramas “iZombie” (#5: 0.6/ 1 at 8 p.m.) and “In the Dark” (#5: 0.5/ 1 at 9 p.m.) were barely visible.
