The World Series dominated Tuesday’s ratings, as expected, and took a little big larger bite out of the competition than it did last week.
Game 6 of the Cubs-Indians series scored a 6.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 21.78 million viewers, pending updates. That’s on par with Sunday’s Game 5 and gave FOX a big win for the night.
“This Is Us” was the No. 1 non-sports show of the night with a 2.3 rating, off 0.1 from last week. It was also the only show to get above a 1.5 in the 18-49 demographic. A “Voice” clip show and “Chicago Fire” each posted a 1.4 for NBC, with “Fire” down two tenths of a point vs. last week.
“The Flash” scored a series-low 0.9 (pending updates) for The CW, while “No Tomorrow” held at 0.3. “Agents of SHIELD” was steady at 0.8 for ABC, but the network’s comedies were down a bit. “The Middle” (1.4) fell a tenth of a point, and “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.0) and “The Real O’Neals” (0.8) each dipped two tenths. “American Housewife” (1.5) is even with last week’s early numbers and off a tenth from its final 1.6.
CBS opted to air repeats against the World Series.

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.
