Game 7 of the World Series delivered huge numbers for FOX Wednesday night. The originals that aired opposite the Houston Astros’ series-clinching win, not surprisingly, were mostly down.
The game delivered an 18.8 household rating in metered markets, the second-highest mark for any baseball game in the past 13 years (behind only last year’s Game 7). It ended just before midnight ET, so upward adjustments are likely in the final ratings.
“Survivor” and “Modern Family” tied for the lead among adults 18-49 on the other networks, each scoring a 1.5 rating. Both were down 0.2 vs. last week. “The Goldbergs” (1.2) and “Speechless” (0.9) also fell two tenths of a point for ABC, and “American Housewife” was off a tenth at 1.2.
“The Blacklist,” “Designated Survivor,” “Riverdale” and “Dynasty” all held steady with last week. CBS and NBC aired reruns from 9-11 p.m.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||7.0/25||1.1/4||0.9/3||0.7/3||0.4/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||24.68||4.45||5.19||4.36||1.17|

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.
