For Fox, A Lousy Subway Ride

The final game of the World Series struck out Thursday night, falling as badly in the ratings as the New York Mets did to the New York Yankees.

Game 5 drew a 14.5 rating and a 22 share for Fox during primetime, clobbered in the 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. hours by NBC's Must-See lineup.

However, the big loser for the night may have been ABC's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, which drew a 5.0/8 during the 8:00 p.m. half hour and a 6.1/9 at 8:30, its worst ratings ever.
