UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 150 Monday Cable Originals & Network Finals: 10.19.2020

 

 

 

 

NETWORK FINALS:  We don’t have specifics on this, but it appears as though ABC had some local preemptions for MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, since DANCING WITH THE STARS dropped 0.2 and EMERGENCY CALL was down 0.1 in final numbers.  At FOX, as anticipated, LA’S FINEST dropped 0.3 in finals, although its 0.6 still showed the value of its NFL lead-in.

    Do you have Player Select at 8 PM on Disney XD? Thanks

    Why was Monday Night Football on broadcast TV last night? And why would the game be carried on FOX instead of ABC (simulcast from ESPN)?


    • Mark

      The 5:00 game was actually supposed to be the Thursday Night Football game last week on FOX/NFL Network, but it was moved to last night for COVID-related reasons. The early start time was to avoid a conflict with Monday Night Football on ESPN.


      • 69 Road Runner

        Well, that explains the early game, but what about the late game? Why did FOX carry the Cowboys game already being televised by ESPN?
