Averaging a 3.9/11 rating for the week, FOX widened its lead as this fall's No. 1 network among Adults 18-49 outperformed the No. 2 network (CBS) by +39% --- more than a full rating point advantage.

With an astounding seven-game 2011 MLB WORLD SERIES, THE X FACTOR's very first live performance show and the scarily strong 22nd installment of THE SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR, FOX also won the week among Total Viewers, Adults 18-34 and Teens.

Key weekly highlights include:

· The first THE X FACTOR live performance show gave FOX the Tuesday win and posted the highest-rated Tuesday night on any network so far this season.

· Game 7 of the 2011 MLB WORLD SERIES drew 25.4 million viewers and is the highest-rated, most-watched game since 2004, when the Boston Red Sox ended their historic World Series drought in Game 4 with 28.8 million viewers.

· Game 7 was FOX's single most watched Friday night program in FOX history and gave the network its highest-rated Friday night in more than 15 years among Adults 18-49 (since 10/11/96).

· The complete 2011 MLB WORLD SERIES on FOX averaged 16.6 million viewers, up an impressive +19% over last year's 14.3 million viewers.
