Primetime Ratings: Fox Beats NBC With World Series

Cardinals-Red Sox still tracking higher than 2012 Series

In the battle of live sports, Fox's coverage of the fourth game of the 2013 World Series lead the night an overall 5.1 rating/13 share (inflated due to NFL overrun) with adults 18-49, according to Nielsen overnight numbers.

The game drew a 10.5 overnight HH rating, which was the best for a non-clinching Game 4 since 2009. Fox will release official numbers later on Monday.

NBC came in second with a 4.5/11, with Sunday Night Football, which NBC will release official numbers for on Tuesday. Football Night in America drew a 2.8.

CBS and ABC tied third with a 1.5/4. CBS' lineup was skewed in some markets due to NFL overrun. The Amazing Race fell 11% to a 1.7, The Good Wife was even with a 1.4 and The Mentalist rose 8% to a 1.3.

ABC's Once Upon a Time was up a tenth to a 2.2, Revenge was flat with last week's 1.5 and Betrayal upticked a tenth to a 1.0.
