Saturday TV Ratings 10/28/23: World Series Drops in Game 2, Colorado/UCLA College Football Takes Strong Second, SNL Rises (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: The World Series (1.55, -0.40) weakened significantly in game 2, but the rating was still high enough to give Fox a pronounced lead in the Adults 18-49 demographic. ABC took a strong second with its 'CO v. UCLA' college football game (1.05), and NBC was right at the alphabet network's heels with its 'Ohio State v. Wisconsin' game (1.00). NBC also had 'Saturday Night Live' (0.78, +0.04) in the 11:30 time slot, where the sketch-comedy series grew by four-hundredths. '48 Hours' (0.18, -0.02) slipped yet again on CBS. The Tiffany network also placed a '48 Hours' rerun at 9 (0.13) and an encore of 'NCIS: Hawai'i' (0.18) at 8. The CW's broadcast of Steve Carell film 'The 40 Year-Old Virgin' (0.05) was passable enough. 

Finals Update: 'College Football: CO v. UCLA' (+0.2), 'College Football: OH St. v. WI' (+0.1), and '2023 World Series Game 2' (+0.5) adjusted up.
