Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Friday, Oct. 28, 2016
The numbers for Friday include some major MLB coverage and continued progress on some returning CW favorites:
|Time||Show||Adults 18-49 Rating/Share||Viewers (millions)|
|8 p.m.||World Series Game 3 (FOX) (8-11 p.m.)||4.7/14||17.68|
|It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC) – R||1.0/4||4.07|

|Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW)||0.2/1||0.48|
|10 p.m.||Blue Bloods (CBS)||1.1/5||8.76|
Following its final season premiere last week, “The Vampire Diaries” managed to hold steady with a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row, with 0.92 million viewers. Meanwhile, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” continued to bring in low numbers, despite being a critical favorite on the network, keeping its 0.2 from last week once again.
On CBS, “MacGyver” dipped one tenth from a 1.1 to a 1.0, while “Blue Bloods” managed to hold steady with a 1.1. FOX’s coverage of Game 3 between the Indians and the Cubs in the MLB World Series dominated the rest of the ratings though, predictably, bringing in a 4.7 average rating throughout its three hour broadcast, and a peak of 18.42 million viewers throughout the night.
This was noticeably higher than last year’s World Series coverage, and is the most-watched Game 3 since the Red Sox vs the Cardinals game in 2004, though it still didn’t manage to beat the 5.6 rating that Game 1 brought in earlier.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.0/4||0.9/4||0.8/3||4.7/14||0.3/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||8.13||3.98||3.79||17.68||0.70|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
