Tuesday TV Ratings 10/27/20: This Is Us Returns Down but Strong, World Series Soars for Final Game, The Bachelorette Rises (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: The sixth and final World Series game of 2020 posted a monstrous 2.7 A18-49 rating on the Fox network, well above what the past five game garnered (2.4/2.3/2.0/2.3/2.6) and well ahead of all other broadcast offerings. The game will likely adjust up by several tenths after finals, potentially becoming the first game of 2020 to break a 3.0. Over on ABC, 'The Bachelorette' (1.3) rose a tenth from last week and led into dismal comedy repeats of 'The Conners' (0.5) and 'Black-ish' (0.3). CBS had primetime editions of longtime game shows 'The Price Is Right' (0.7) and 'Let's Make A Deal' (0.6), both outpacing what drama encores managed in the slot a week prior. Despite the slightly stronger lead-in, 'The FBI Declassified' (0.3) shed a tenth at 10pm. The CW's 'Swamp Thing' (0.2) inched up while 'Tell Me a Story' (0.1) held even.

The other major news outside of the World Series was the season five premiere of NBC drama 'This Is Us' (1.4). It was four-tenths behind the 1.8 it posted for last year's debut and three-tenths below its March 2020 finale (1.7) but remained multiple ticks above its 1.1 low-point. Lead-in 'The Voice' (1.0) lost a tenth from its last episode.

Finals Update: 'World Series Game 6' (+0.7), 'This Is Us' (+0.1), and 'The Price Is Right At Night' (+0.1) adjusted up. The repeat of 'The Conners' (-0.1) adjusted down.
