Fast National ratings for Sunday, Oct. 28, 2007.
See Sox. See Rox. See Sox and Rox on FOX. See Sox box Rox on FOX. Sorry FOX. No more Sox.
The Boston Red Sox completed a four-game World Series sweep on Sunday, leaving FOX with a nightly win, but also three more days of repeats instead of baseball.
Overall, FOX averaged a 10.8 rating/17 share for the night, far ahead of the 8.6/14 for ABC or CBS' 7.3/11. NBC (3.2/5) and The CW (0.8/1) were hardly factors.
FOX also did a 6.0 rating among adults 18-49, beating ABC's 5.0 rating in the key demographic. CBS had a 2.6 rating, followed by the 1.7 rating for NBC. The CW's 0.4 rating was just silly.
In the 7 p.m. hour, CBS's "60 Minutes" and FOX's baseball tied with an 8.6/15. ABC's "America's Funniest Home Videos" was a respectable third, with NBC a distance fourth with NFL post-game. On The CW, "CW Now" and an "Aliens in America" repeat did a 0.6/1.
Baseball boosted FOX to an 11.5/18 in the 8 p.m. hour, while ABC moved up to second with an 8.5/13 for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." CBS' "CSI" repeat did far better than the recently cancelled "Viva Laughlin," with a 6.2/10. NBC's broadcast of "The Bourne Supremacy" was fourth. The CW's "Life Is Wild" had a 0.8/1, pulling in over a million viewers!
In a close 9 p.m. race, FOX's baseball had a 12.2/18, with ABC's "Desperate Housewives" close behind with an 11.8/17. CBS' "Cold Case" was third with a 7.5/11, not quite twice the 4.0/6 for NBC's movie. The CW's "America's Next Top Model" repeat was fifth.
ABC won the 10 p.m. hour with an 8.8/14 for "Brothers & Sisters." CBS' "Shark" had a 6.8/11 for second. "Dateline NBC" was third.
