ALCS (& Yankees) Put TBS Back On Top Cable Primetime Ratings For One More Week

The ALCS, featuring the New York Yankees, put TBS back on top of the cable primetime weekly adults 18-49 ratings and average viewership for one more week. The ALCS is done, and the Yankees with it, and TBS will slip behind ESPN (and probably USA) until football season is over. USA finished second in primetime average viewership, even though its biggest scripted originals are still off the air. Such is the power of WWE Raw and NCIS repeats.

SpongeBob doesn't care when baseball gets played or between which teams, he'll keep Nickelodeon at the top of the total day average viewership rankings seemingly forever.
