Fox Ratings Hurt in New York by Cablevision Blackout; No Imminent Deal Between Fox and Cablevision Seen

Oct 22, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Fox’s ratings for this week’s "House" in New York plunged amid the network’s blackout for Cablevision viewers in that city and Philadelphia, reports MediaDailyNews

"House" had a 0.8 rating among 18- to 49-year-olds, down 67% from the week before the blackout, the story notes. "Glee" on Tuesday, meanwhile, posted a 1.3 rating in the same demo in New York, also down by 67%, the story says.

But this week’s episode of "Glee" was a repeat, so some decline would have been anticipated, it notes. Cablevision provides TV service to about 43% of the 7.5 million homes in the New York market, the story says.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, there’s still no sign of a deal between Fox and Cablevision in their retransmission dispute.
