Baseball has been berry, berry good to TBS for the week of October 5-11, 2009. While the MLB LDS playoff round provided only 1 game over the minimum of 12, it was still enough to put TBS on top of primetime viewership, adults 18-49, and for the first time I can remember TBS topped Nickelodeon for the top total day average viewership.

Too bad for TBS that the 4 series were so short, or they would have gotten even more of a boost for the week of October 12-18. Still, there's no crying in baseball!
