Wednesday brought domination from the epic Game 7 of the World Series that saw the Chicago Cubs win it all for the first time since 1908. It delivered a huge 40.1 million viewers, the most for a baseball game since 1991. We'll see if this makes any difference for baseball's future in the long run but everyone was interested again in the sport which has taken a backseat to the NFL and the NBA for a long time. The other networks mostly cowered in fear as NBC's entire lineup plus Criminal Minds went with last minute reruns instead of regularly scheduled episodes. ABC had the 50th Annual CMA Awards which are usually a big draw. They were of course down from last year but actually still delivered decent numbers despite mammoth competition. CBS decided to keep new episodes of Survivor (which probably won't cause any long term damage) and Code Black (which is inching closer to a burn-off). They both crashed by three tenths in the demo to new series lows. CW was barely affected with Arrow down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Frequency was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: World Series (FOX) - Of course
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Code Black (CBS)
