Sorry, “This Is Us”: Tuesday night was all about baseball — especially in Tinsel Town. Fortunately for Angelenos, the Dodgers stayed alive with a World Series Game 6 victory.
Primetime champ Fox must be pretty pleased with the results too.
Other networks felt the blow from the potential elimination game. For example, the hit NBC drama dove 26 percent from last week in they key 18-49 demographic’s Nielsen ratings. It didn’t help either that “Us” followed a “Voice” recap show this time around.
Don’t worry, fans of the Pearson family — last night’s episode will just grow even more than usual in delayed viewing.

In any event, NBC finished a very distant second to Fox in the main demo, while CBS was runner-up among total viewers. Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast national data for Fox should be considered subject to significant adjustment.
Fox was first in ratings with a 5.1 rating/19 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 18.9 million, according to preliminary numbers. Game 6 ran throughout prime.
NBC was second in ratings with a 1.3/5 and third in viewers with 6 million. Following a “Voice” recap episode, “This Is Us” at 9 p.m. declined to a 2.0/7 and 8.3 million viewers. At 10, “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders” had a 0.8/3 and 3.6 million viewers.
