The final two games of the World Series gave FOX another ratings victory in the week of Oct. 30.

Games 6 and 7 of the Astros-Dodgers series were the two top shows of the week by wide margins in both adults 18-49 and total viewers, giving FOX a comfortable weekly win in both measures. For the season to date, FOX now stands in second place in adults 18-49 (0.1 behind NBC) and has moved up to third in viewers.

“The Big Bang Theory’s” Thursday debut (2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic) was the top non-sports show of the week on the broadcast networks. An NFL-boosted “60 Minutes” finished third behind the two World Series games in viewers with 15.09 million.

Here are the network standings for the week of Oct. 30-Nov. 5.
