CBS's weekly steamrolling of the competition had to take a break from October 27 - November 2, as the end of the lowest rated World Series in modern history pushed Fox to win the adults 18-49 and adults 18-34 demos for the week. Still, CBS had the largest audience and the most adults 25-54 for the week. 

CBS's average viewership of 11.38 million beat ABC by a 1.2+ million viewers. For demo adults 18-49 it was Fox over ABC by 4.49 million to 4.11 million. For adults 25-54 it was CBS in an extremely close race over ABC by 4.70 million to 4.69 million viewers, with Fox right behind in third (4.67 million). In adults 18-34, Fox won with 60,000, winning with 2.18 million, NBC and ABC finished a close third and fourth with 1.67 million and 1.65 million respectively.

There was hue and cry from the comments crowd last week wanting to see the all the network weekly averages. Feast upon their tiny numbers!
