The World Series is 0 for 2.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.

Demo Profile 2014 WED Oct 22

FOX:  WORLD SERIES GAME 2 stayed at Game 1’s preliminary 2.9.  That’s half a point below the preliminary 3.4 for last year’s Game 2 (which aired on a Thursday), and which adjusted up to 3.6.

CW:  The season premiere of THE 100 was at 0.5, far below last year’s 0.9 series premiere but consistent with where its ratings were at the end of last season.  ARROW rose 0.1 to 0.9 as its lead-in.

ABC:  THE MIDDLE and THE GOLDBERGS were preempted last week, but at 2.0/2.2, they were steady with their last episodes.  MODERN FAMILY lost 0.1 to 3.3, while BLACK-ISH stayed at 2.5.  NASHVILLE was up a tick to 1.4.

NBC:  THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA, SVU and CHICAGO PD were each down 0.1 from last week, respectively to 1.3, 1.6 and 1.5.

CBS:  SURVIVOR lost 0.1 to 2.2, while CRIMINAL MINDS and STALKER held even at 2.4/1.7.

CBS airs its final THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL game tonight, before those games return to a solo home on NFL Network.  FOX for some reason has a rerun BONES on the schedule, which won’t help GRACEPOINT at all.

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