Tuesday TV Ratings 10/20/20: World Series Opens Heavily Down, The Bachelorette Drops in Week Two, Transplant Jumps Behind The Voice (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: Game 1 of the World Series (1.8) was down by more than 40% from the 3.1 A18-49 rating it posted in 2019 but gave the Fox network some relief from the dismal ratings of 'Cosmos' and 'Next'. ABC's 'The Bachelorette' (1.1) took a noticeable three-tenth dip in week 2 but remained in solid territory. The alphabet network aired a 'Supermarket Sweep' pilot encore (0.4) right after the reality juggernaut. 'The Voice' (1.0) was a notch behind 'Bachelorette' but boosted 10pm drama 'Transplant' (0.6) to its highest rating yet, up a whopping three-tenths from last Tuesday's series low. CBS's 'The FBI Declassified' (0.4) dropped five-tenths from last week's NFL-charged result but held even with what it garnered the week before that. Repeats of 'NCIS' (0.4) and 'FBI' (0.4) populated the 8 and 9pm slots. The CW was flat across the board with 'Swamp Thing' (0.1) and 'Tell Me a Story' (0.1). 

Finals Update: Game 1 of the World Series (2.4, +0.6), 'The Bachelorette' (1.2, +0.1), and 'The Voice' (1.1, +0.1) all adjusted up.
