The 10 o’clock dramas on the broadcast networks Wednesday all tied series lows among adults 18-49 opposite Game 2 of the World Series.
“Chicago PD” (1.1 rating), “Criminal Minds” (1.0) and “Designated Survivor” (0.8) each tied their previous lows at 10. All three were even with their performances from a week ago.
The World Series game on FOX, which went into extra innings and ended well past midnight ET, drew an 11.0 household rating in metered markets, up from 10.2 for Tuesday’s Game 1. It will likely adjust up a decent amount from its fast national ratings in the finals.
Elsewhere, “Riverdale” was steady at 0.6 for The CW, but “Dynasty” dipped a tenth to 0.2. ABC’s “The Goldbergs,” “Speechless” and “Modern Family” were steady with last week, while “American Housewife” (1.3) dipped a tenth. “The Blacklist” and “Law & Order: SVU” were also even with last week on NBC.

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.
