On NBC and Game, 5 of the 2021 World Series on Fox went head-to-head Halloween evening for the top primetime spots. However, the NFL showdown between the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings proved more attractive for primetime viewers as the game took the evening’s highest ratings and viewership. https://politicsay.com/cowboys-get-another-week-of-wondering-about-prescott/
Game 5 of the World Series, which took over Fox’s typical animation slate, brought the Astros its second win. In early numbers, Fox’s coverage of the 2021 World Series’ latest game earned a 2.7 demo rating and 12.31 million viewers, significantly up from Game 1.
Of course with both SNF and the 2021 World Series, numbers are set to rise pending adjustment – as they do with all major live and sporting events.
Also in the same hour, The CW’s Legends of the Hidden Temple (0.1, 0.22M) saw its smallest audience since it premiered in early October.
ABC’s Halloween evening peaked with AFV (0.4, 4.12M), followed by Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (0.4, 3.49M), then Supermarket Sweep (0.3, 2.20M) and The Rookie (0.3, 3.21M).
