Saturday TV Ratings 10/29/22: Saturday Night Live Hits Season High, World Series Slips on Night 2, College Football Strong (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Game 2 of the '2022 World Series' (2.42, -0.43) was a little over 15% lower than Friday's opening game (2.85) but still gave Fox a comfortable win on Saturday night. ABC's 'MI St. v. MI' college football game (1.30) was solid in its own right but settled for second place in the 8PM hour. On NBC, a Jack Harlow-hosted 'Saturday Night Live' (0.75, +0.09) posted a higher rating than every other episode from this season. Earlier in the night, reruns of 'Password' (0.12), 'Dateline' (0.18), and 'SNL Vintage' (0.21) were abysmal. CBS had a feeble 'NWSL Soccer Championship' (0.23) and an anemic 10:30PM 'Young Sheldon' rerun (0.06). On the CW, 'Criss Angel's Magic with the Stars' (0.04, -0.01) and 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.04, -0.02) trickled down. 

Finals Update: '2022 World Series Game 2' (+0.7) and 'College Football: MI St. v. MI' (+0.2) adjusted up. The repeat of 'Young Sheldon' (-0.1) adjusted down.
