ABC's Quantico continues to show promise in week 2.

The FBI thriller held on to last week's premiere number among adults 18-49 (1.9 rating), already giving it a leg up vs. most of this year's new TV shows.

The return of CBS' Madame Secretary and The Good Wife were down from last year, but those 2014 ratings were helped by a football double-header earlier in the day on the network.

Still, the networks' primetime lineups were likely impacted by a busy night on cable, including the Season 1 finale of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead and the season openers of HBO's The Leftovers and Showtime's Homeland and The Affair.

Numbers subject to change due to football, but NBC won the night with 17.6 million, followed by CBS (10 million), Fox (7.9 million) and ABC (5 million).
