Ratings: ‘Quantico,’ ‘The Good Wife,’ ‘Blood & Oil’ plummet versus World Series

Well, people who like to come up with creative excuses for shows getting great ratings certainly have a nice one now: The World Series devoured most of the primetime TV ratings.

Winners – Is there really a winner? We’ll give it to the NFL, given that NBC’s telecast of the Green Bay Packers versus the Denver Broncos drew a massive 7.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic during the live figures. Heck, the pregame drew a 5.8. Meanwhile, the World Series featuring the Kansas City Royals clinching their title against the New York Mets drew a 4.7. That’s right: We ended up seeing an NFL pre-game show draw a better number than the last game of baseball this season.

Losers – Pretty much everything else. “Quantico” had the biggest drop all the way to a 1.2, which could spell some trouble for the series if it doesn’t end up recovering. Meanwhile, “The Good Wife” (0.9), “Blood & Oil” (0.8), and “Once Upon a Time” (1.5) were all down, with the former being the only one that actually declined less than 10%. “CSI: Cyber” (0.8) is the only other show that can claim that, but it’s not like it was putting up a great number to begin with.

There was not a single program last night to actually rise in the ratings versus the week before, so there’s not really that much to discuss here. The only thing that we can say is that let’s just hope that things start to turn around for some of these shows moving into next week.
