Here's Wednesday #4 As expected, the rain delayed MLB playoff game screws with the ratings picture more than a bit. And Fox is taking more than a small risk by essentially forcing all its shows to rebuild an audience during October 27 - November 23 sweeps. I've used the average ratings to try to create some consistency. The problem is that the times are accurate for the East Coast, but not for the West and particularly for the West Coast where the game did not compete with the other networks prime time schedule. So while Fox may have gotten more viewers, they didn't necessarily get them in prime time. Looking at the rest of the networks, I don't see any significance to the numbers.
