'This Is Us' Rebounds After World Series

Almost every show on Tuesday's primetime lineup took a beating last week from the double whammy that was Halloween and the World Series, but it turns out that the rebound has been well worth it. 1 and two shows in This Is Us and The Voice - while CBS dominated in overall audience (1.2, 11.029M viewers) fueled by No. 1 NCIS (1.5, 13.30M).

Every show on NBC, CBS, ABC and CW that faced previous Tuesday's World Series and Halloween distractions were up by at least a tenth of a point in the key 18-49 age bracket, and some of them increased in total viewers. The CW averaged a 0.7 and 1.9 million viewers. "NCIS: New Orleans" pulled in a 1.0 and 9.1 million.

The Houston Astros 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 Wednesday was the most-watched prime-time program between October 30 and Sunday, averaging 28.287 million viewers.

The seven-game series averaged 18.73 million viewers, 18 percent less than the 22.847 million average for the 2016 Series, the most-watched Series since 2004 when the Boston Red Sox four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals for their first World Series championship since 1918 averaged 25.4 million viewers. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" at 9:30 ended up with just a 0.6/2 and 1.5 million viewers. The impressive showing was followed byLegends of Tomorrow (1.53 mil/0.5), which was up by 25 percent.
