Everything came up reruns. All 13 episodes of NYC 22 have aired despite its terrible ratings, so good on CBS. The top reruns were regular Saturday night fare.

Next Saturday, ABC will have a NASCAR race, CBS will have a pre-season NFL game between the Texans and Saints, and NBC will have an hourlong recap of this year’s WrestleMania.
