TV Ratings Report: Sports Soar, ABC Sinks

by at . Comments

The Cowboys-Redskins Sunday night football matchup and the Red Sox amazing comeback over the Tigers in the ALCS dominated the ratings game yesterday, while ABC's formerly strong lineup continued to falter.

Once Upon a Time fell 12 percent from last week's 2.6 among 18-49-year olds, Revenge fell 11 percent and Betrayal hit a series low. The latter will likely be canceled at any moment now...
