Spotted Ratings, Sunday 10/28/12


WHAT MATTERS:
  • The broadcast night was again dominated by sports; Sunday Night Football held off game 4 of the World Series, but the fourth and final game of the Series was the highest-rated by a long shot. Thanks to the NFL lead-in, extra innings and an ultimately decisive game. Those factors helped it beat the year-ago Game 4, the first positive trend in what had been a reliably down-low-teens series. Though Fox is certainly sad to only get four games, even though it was a historically low-rated Series, at least they avoid potentially huge scheduling headaches had future games been rained out (which seemed quite possible).
  • At 10/9c, the 100th The Mentalist was the weakest of the show's three start-on-time results this season, and 666 Park Ave gave back a tenth following its bounce last week.
  • On AMC, The Walking Dead (5.4) was up a few ticks and topped the week in entertainment programming once more. Showtime's Homeland (0.9) hit a series high for the fourth time in five episodes this season.
