Primetime Ratings: Fox Hits Another Ratings Home Run

World Series tops night yet again
Publish date:

Fox won out over its broadcast rivals on the first Monday of November behind the fifth game of the World Series, which was down from Monday's high but still packed a punch. CBS was the top entertainment network, anchored by its middle-hour comedies.

According to preliminary Nielsen nationals adjusted for time zone differences, the Fall Classic averaged a 5.3 rating/14 share in adults 18-49 and 17.1 million viewers overall, making it the top broadcast program of the night in both categories. Though down from Sunday's series-high averages (7.8/20 in 18-49, 22.8 million viewers overall), Monday's Game 5 was up about 30% over last year's Game 5, which was the final game of the series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Tampa Bay Rays.
