Though the World Series was a brief affair with the Red Sox besting the Rockies in a four game sweep, all four games made the top 20, plus the pregame of game four. Sunday's finale placed second on the list by total viewers and adding in House, Fox had 4 shows in the top 10. Mark Cuban's last stand on DWTS was the week's #1 show.
