Sunday night was all about live sports, and not the silly stuff coming out of the mouths of babes.
Last night, with a lead-in encore of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” instead of the usual “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” ABC’s Tiffany Haddish-hosted “Kids Say the Darndest Things” lost 1 million viewers from last week.
Sorry, national pastime: NBC’s primetime NFL football ruled over Game 5 of Fox’s World Series.
NBC was first in ratings with a 4.2 rating/17 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 13.8 million, according to preliminary numbers.
Fox was second in ratings with a 2.0/8 and third in viewers with 10.2 million.
CBS was third in ratings with a 1.6/7 and second in viewers with 9.3 million.
ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and in viewers with 3.2 million.
More to come…
