Spotted Ratings, Monday 10/22/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • On the last and least-watched of the presidential debate nights, the atypical circumstances were a boon to ABC (where a shortened Dancing with the Stars perked up by 14%) and a bane to NBC (where a shortened The Voice dropped by 10%). CBS' repeats equaled the week-ago Partners original numbers.
  • Fox sat out Debate Night in America in favor of Game 7 of the NLCS. It was the highest-rated game of the series but still not much of a standout on a crowded night. And Detroit and San Francisco should certainly make for another "have-not" matchup for World Series ratings. (More on that later.) Baseball lost out to ESPN's Monday Night Football (4.5), but that game was at season-low levels.

2 Broke Girls matching Partners' original proves that CBS should pull the show in favour of any repeats. Led by HIMYM, an encore of 2BG would do even better.
