NBC’s “Celebrity Family Feud” (1.8/6) was off 10% from its summer average, while “America’s Got Talent” (3.4/10) landed slightly ahead of par. NBC took second with a 2.3 rating/7 share.

Fox nabbed third with repeats with a 1.8 rating/5 share, and CBS was fourth with a 1.7 rating/5 share. “Big Brother” (2.2/6) rated flat from last week.
