Fast Demo 2017 Oct 23.MON

CBS:  THE BIG BANG THEORY is currently down 0.1 to 2.7, and 9JKL is up 0.2 to 1.4, but that hour tends to shift in finals.  KEVIN CAN WAIT rose 0.1 to 1.2, while both ME, MYSELF & I (0.9) and SCORPION (0.8) were steady.

NBC:  THE VOICE fell 0.3 to 2.1, and THE BRAVE stayed at 1.0.

ABC:  The network was preempted in Washington for MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, which may lead to adjustments this afternoon.  Currently, DANCING WITH THE STARS is down 0.1 to 1.3, and THE GOOD DOCTOR is also down 0.1 to 1.9.

FOX:  LUCIFER held at 0.8, but THE GIFTED lost 0.1 to 1.0.

CW:  SUPERGIRL (0.5) and VALOR (0.2) were steady.

THE WORLD SERIES begins tonight, which is good news for FOX, although the network would have been happier if the Yankees could have won Game 7 of the ALCS last weekend.


COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
