The Sked: Tuesday Ratings 11.1.2016


This is the WORLD SERIES of FOX’s dreams.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.


FOX:  Game 6 of the WORLD SERIES is at a preliminary 6.2, the same as Sunday’s Game 5 and more than double the 2.8 for the last Game 6 in 2014.

NBC:  THE VOICE ran a 1.4 clip show, underscoring the strength of THIS IS US, which despite the baseball competition and a 0.7 drop in lead-in, slipped just 0.1 from last week to 2.3.  CHICAGO FIRE was down 0.2 to 1.4.

ABC:  THE MIDDLE (1.4) and AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE (1.5) were each down 0.1.  FRESH OFF THE BOAT (1.0) and THE REAL O’NEALS (0.8) each fell 0.2.  AGENTS OF SHIELD held at 0.8.

CW:  THE FLASH lost 0.1 to a series low 0.9, and NO TOMORROW stayed at 0.3.

CBS:  The network opted for reruns against the World Series, topped by 1.1 for NCIS.

FOX hits the jackpot tonight with a WORLD SERIES Game 7, only the third one in 15 years.  That will be a formidable challenge for ABC’s COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, which scored a 3.8 last year.  On cable, WGNAmerica’s flagship series SALEM returns.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.


CABLE RATINGS: Come back this afternoon for detailed demographic ratings for top cable programs from this day.
