FOX once again rode the "Fall Classic" to victories in both the 18-49 demo and total viewers.
Game 2 of the 2013 World Series went up just slightly from last year's second match-up. 'The Big Bang Theory' very impressively retained 100% of its 18-49 demo from last week, despite the added baseball competition. The honeymoon appears to be over for 'The Millers,' which fell a staggering five tenths to a 2.7. 'The Crazy Ones' seems to have settled into a normal range, dropping a smidge to a 2.3. 'Two and a Half Men' recovered a bit from last week's series low, earning its own 2.3. 'Elementary' finally seems to be pulling out of its sophomore tailspin, rising three tenths to a 1.8.
The future looks incredibly bleak for 'Once Upon A Time in Wonderland;' the spin-off's latest outing garnered a 1.1 demo and finished dead last at 8pm. Yep, it even lost to The CW. 'Grey's Anatomy' climbed up a tenth in spite of its awful lead-in. 'Scandal' (surprisingly) fell four tenths to a season low of 2.9, although it still absolutely dominated 10pm.
NBC seems to have entered stasis mode, with 'Sean Saves the World,' 'The Michael J. Fox Show,' and 'Parenthood' all matching last week's numbers. The CW's 'The Vampire Diaries' is quickly cementing its status as the crown jewel of its network, matching last week's 1.3. Lead-out 'Reign' isn't long for this world though, falling to a disappointing 0.6. in week two.
