Baseball good to Fox

0

No surprise here. The World Series boosted Fox to a weekly win in the Nielsen ratings. Unfortunately for the network, the Boston Red Sox swept the series 4-0 over the Colorado Rockies and Sunday’s final day of the ratings week was also the final day of the 2007 World Series. All four games of the World Series made the top 20, but the final game was edged out of the top spot in both HH rating and total viewership by ABC’s Dancing With the Stars."
For the week, Fox had a HH rating of 8.8 and a 14 share, with ABC at 7.4/12, CBS 7.2/12, NBC 4.4/7, CW 1.9/3, Univision 1.8/3, Telemundo and MyNetworkTV tied at 0.6/1, Ion and TeleFutura tied at 0.3/1, and Azteca America 0.1/0.


For the key 18-49 demo, it was Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, Univision, CW, Telemundo, a tie by MyNetworkTV and Telefutura, and a tie by Ion and Azteca America.
