- This evening of sports saw Game 3 of the World Series outscore the combined college football competition on two other broadcast networks. Game 3 will finish as the only of the five applicable 2011 World Series games that's up year-to-year, up by 10% on last year's 2.9 Game 3 (still the lowest-rated World Series game ever).
- ABC got a bit of a bad break from a massive weather delay for Texas Tech/Oklahoma, though I'm not sure that matchup would've driven the season-low rating up too much. I'm not totally sure how this played out across the country, but at least in my east coast market we got the entirety of Stanford/Washington on ABC, then TT/Oklahoma (which turned out to be a great game!) was shipped over to ESPN2.
