Fox Scores With World Series

Oct 27, 2005  •  Post A Comment

Despite going down as the lowest-rated World Series ever, the four games of the just-completed Series powered Fox to four prime-time wins in five days for the first time since last year’s World Series.

The Chicago White Sox victory over the Houston Astros in Wednesday’s fourth and final game drew a 13.0 Nielsen Media Research rating and 21 share, the highest-rated game in the Series and Fox’s highest-rated program since the May 25 finale of “American Idol.”

The entire Series averaged an 11.1 rating and a 19 share, down 30 percent from last year’s extraordinary curse-busting Boston Red Sox championship.
