-Ratings Breakdown:
Game one of The World Series on Fox (Giants 8, Tigers 3) topped the Wednesday overnights, with an estimated 9.3 rating/15 share in primetime. The peak was a 9.7/15 from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, San Francisco versus Detroit last night was just two percent below game one of Texas vs. St. Louis one year earlier (9.5/15 on Wednesday 10/11/11), and that translated into 14.17 million viewers and a 4.2 rating/12 share among adults 18-49 (based on the Live Plus Same day Results).

The World Series Pre-Game on Fox scored an estimated 7.5/13 (#1) in the 8 p.m. half-hour. Don’t forget that results for any live sporting event are always approximate.

CBS held up well opposite baseball with its line-up of Survivor: Philippines (#2: 6.9/11), Criminal Minds (#3: 7.5/11) and veteran CSI (#2: 6.6/11), which bested No. 3 Nashville in the 10 p.m. hour (4.8/ 8) by 37 percent in the overnights. And the trio, on average, increased by three percent from the year-ago evening (which included an encore telecast of Criminal Minds).

The standout on ABC, of course, was Modern Family, which was the top-rated scripted show of the evening with a 9.0/14 at 9 p.m. But relocated lead-out Suburgatory (like former time period occupants Happy Endings, Cougar Town and Mr. Sunshine) did not come close with a third-place 5.5/ 9 at 9:30 p.m. (and retention of 61 percent). Week three of aforementioned drama Nashville dipped to a 4.8/ 8 (#3) at 10 p.m., which was 25 percent behind-year ago occupant Revenge (6.4/11 on 10/26/11) and four percent below one week earlier. Three-week overnight track for Nashville: 6.8/12 – 5.0/ 9 – 4.8/ 8.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was always reliable The Middle (#3: 6.1/10 at 8 p.m.), which was 13 percent below the year-ago evening (7.0/12 on 10/26/11) and week five The Neighbors (#3: 4.8/ 8 at 8:30 p.m.), which trailed year-ago occupant Suburgatory (7.0/12 on 10/26/11) by 31 percent. One week earlier, The Neighbors scored a 5.0/ 8 on Oct. 17.

Over at NBC, Animal Practice earned its cancellation stripes with a fourth-place 2.8/ 8 at 8 p.m. Next was Guys With Kids, which will not necessarily benefit once sophomore Whitney replaces Animal Practice on November 14, at a fourth-place 3.1/ 5 at 8:30 p.m. At 9 p.m., the 300th episode of Law & Order: SVU rose to a 5.1/ 8 (#4) from 9-10 p.m., followed by week three of Chicago Fire at a fourth-place 4.3/ 8 at 10 p.m. On paper, the overnights for Chicago Fire do not impress. But this was a minor boost of two percent from one week earlier, and there was no loss of rating in the second half-hour. Retention for Chicago Fire out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of lead-in Law & Order: SVU (5.3/ 8), meanwhile, was decent at 81 percent. Three-week overnight track for Chicago Fire: 4.7/ 8 – 4.2/ 7 – 4.3/ 8).

In other week three news, drama Arrow on The CW earned its full season renewal stripes with a 2.7/ 4 (#5) from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, this was only four percent below week two, with growth from a repeat of short-lived Ringer on the year-ago evening (1.1/ 2 on 10/26/11) of 145 percent. Three week overnight track for Arrow: 3.0/ 5 – 2.8/ 5 – 2.7/ 5.

With Arrow a true bright spot, The CW needs to eventually address veteran Supernatural, which scored a 1.5/ 2 from 9-10 p.m. While that is stronger than its year-ago performance anchoring Friday, Supernatural dipped by 21 percent from year-ago occupant America’s Next Top Model (1.9/ 3 on 10/26/11). And retention out of Arrow was only 56 percent.
