Fox declared a ratings victory for the week of Oct. 23-29, based on Nielsen Live+7 Day data, with the big draw for the network that week being its coverage of Games 1 through 5 of the World Series.

Fox announced that it pulled a 3.6 average rating/14 share for the week in the key 18-49 demo in L+7, claiming a 64% advantage over second-place NBC’s 2.2/8.

“‘The Orville,’ Fox’s all-new space adventure series from Seth MacFarlane, delivered a 2.3/9 L7 (up +67% from Live + Same Day), its highest-rated Thursday telecast to date and up +10%  from its last original episode,” the network noted. “Recently renewed for a second season, ‘The Orville’ was Thursday’s #2 drama, second only to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ (3.3/13 L7) and beating ‘Chicago Fire’ (2.2/9 L7), ‘Scandal’ (2.0/8 L7) and ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ (2.0/8 L7).”

The World Series grew during the week, culminating in Sunday’s Game 5 (Oct. 29) delivering a 5.3 average rating in 18-49 and 19 million total viewers.
