What Channel Is the World Series On?

What Channel Is the World Series On?”

First of all, congratulations to the Houston Astros in winning their first World Series last night beating the the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 at Chavez Ravine.

The Astros' 13-12, 10-inning victory in Game 5 on Sunday was the most- watched prime-time program between October 23 and Sunday, averaging 18.94 million viewers.

Through all seven games, the 2017 World Series was averaging 18.9 million viewers.

Though down 43% in the key demo and 37% in total audience from the fast affiliates of last year's once in three or four generations World Series final, last night's Game 7 is the second best Fall Classic ender in years. Every single one of us projected somewhere between 15 and 17 million viewers a game, behind last year's series but in line with less-glamorous previous series.

Most other broadcast shows airing against The World Series were down in the ratings unless noted otherwise below. "American Housewife" averaged 1.2 and 4.5 million. NBC was third, averaging 6.93 million, followed by ABC, which averaged 4.54 million viewers, finishing fourth.

Last night's game ranks as the second highest rated baseball broadcast since the 2002 Game 7 between the San Francisco Giants and the Anaheim Angels. The runover is not considered a separate program, but is included in the weekly average.

It's got a near-impossible act to live up to, but the Dodgers-Astros World Series is averaging 16.1 million viewers through five games for Fox, Nielsen said.

Fox aired 19 hours, 40 minutes of prime-time programming for ratings purposes.

Wednesday's victory for the Astros was the second most-watched baseball telecast since 2004.

Fox News Channel edged ESPN, 2.294 million-2.291 million to be the most- watched cable network.

On CBS, "Survivor" drew a 1.5 and 7.5 million viewers. Now pulling in a 7.0/25 in unadjusted fast affiliates with 24.68 million viewers, Fox is obviously the victor for the night. "NCIS" at 8 put up a 1.2/5 and 11.9 million viewers.

For The CW, "The Flash" at 8 had a 0.7/3 and 2 million viewers. The "CBS Evening News" has finished third each week since the week of September 25- 29, 2006. The game seemed to wrap up pretty quickly after that, a far cry from the extra innings and near-record run times seen earlier in the series.
