Opening Fox’s night, Hell’s Kitchen (3.3 mil/1.0) ticked down from its premiere.

Over on CBS, even a pistol-packing Amy Acker couldn’t save MacGyver (9.1 mil/1.3) from slipping 16 and 23 percent from its premiere; still, Mac led the night in the demo and remains up from Amazing Race‘s year-ago numbers (6 mil/1.2).
