Wednesday night was all about the sixth and final game of the World Series that saw the Boston Red Sox win for the third time in ten years. The competition led to drops for most other series though the 8pm hour of ABC was the least affected. The Middle was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Back in the Game was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. After a Modern Family repeat, Super Fun Night fell six tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo to a series low. So of its four new comedies, ABC had three get a 1.7 with just Trophy Wife getting a 1.4 this week. There don't seem to be any clear answers but The Goldbergs seems to be the safest bet to get a full season. At 10pm, Nashville was down two tenths in viewers and the demo to a series low. I know it was against the World Series but a 1.4 demo is not acceptable and Nashville seems to be on more of a downward trend.

CBS saw drops across the board with series lows either tied or reached. Survivor was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo to tie a series low, Criminal Minds was down a million viewers and three tenths in the demo, also tying a series low, and CSI was down a million viewers and four tenths in the demo hitting a series low outright. This was a rough night for CBS as their shows might have more crossover with baseball fans. On NBC, only Revolution was new but it held up as it was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. It has leveled off but the problem is it has leveled off at a 1.4 demo. Both Revolution and Nashville with their 1.4 demos are big question marks for third seasons.
