The Will Arnett sitcom, which earned a full season order by NBC last month, sank to 4.3m (1.5) at 8pm, after which a repeat logged 3m (1.0).
A Biggest Loser special airing between 9pm and 11pm took 3.7m/1.2.
Meanwhile, ABC overtook Fox in primetime, with The Middle (9.1m/2.5), Suburgatory (8.3m/2.5), Modern Family (12.6m/4.5) and Happy Endings (7.2m/2.7) proving too strong for X Factor (8.5m/2.5) and a special edition of Mobbed (4.7m/1.6).
The Alphabet Network also won the 10pm hour, as Revenge took 7.2m (2.1), beating CBS's rerun of CSI (7.3m/1.6).
Earlier on the Tiffany Network, a recap of Survivor: South Pacific mustered 7.9m (1.9) in the 8pm hour, and an old episode of Criminal Minds attracted 8.2m (1.8).
An America's Next Top Model-themed CW schedule performed poorly, as a repeat of the reality show entertained 863k (0.3) at 8pm, and the audience only rose to 992k (0.4) for its recap edition at 9pm.
