    oh nvm i found it and i was right

    FOX was second with a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating even with last season.

    And this is why I think that (outside of a catastrophic collapse of American Idol) FOX will cruise to a #1 finish for the season.

    They’re already even with last fall and they still have and additional two or three World Series games that weren’t in last year’s average

    FOX should finish up year-to-year for the fall, while everyone else will be down (NBC might be flat or close enough to it). Then you add in the Super Bowl and it’s game over.

    Holy Crap FOX! the World Series propelled them up 2 slots !?! What of its a 7 game series will they pass NBC ?

    Not that I necessarily disagree, Fox quite possibly will finish the season number one, but I don’t think it is a done deal just yet. NBC has the winter Olympics this year, which will massively outrate the pitiful showing it put up last February. Not sure that it will be enough to keep the lead over Fox, but I think it might be possible as NBC currently still has a .4 lead over Fox.

    Fox also has the nfc championship game.

    Sunday Night Football…plus u add in the two Wild Card playoff games and the winter Olympics, I think the Peacock and FOX will tie for viewers 18-49 age group at seasons end.

    The 1st wildcard game starts 4:30 so i dont think that counts cause its too early for primetime.
