The San Francisco Giants' sweep of the Detroit Tigers set a record low for the World Series' television ratings. The four games on Fox averaged a 7.6 rating and 12 share, Nielsen Media Research said Monday. The previous low was an 8.4 for the 2008 Philadelphia Phillies-Tampa Bay Rays and 2010 Giants-Texas Rangers series, which each went five games. Last year's St. Louis Cardinals-Rangers World Series went seven games and built momentum to average a 10.0/16. The Giants' 2-0 win in Game 3 on Saturday earned a 6.1/11, and their 4-3, 10-inning victory in the clincher Sunday drew an 8.9/14.

ABC's Sunday-morning political talk show "This Week" has scored its first win over NBC's "Meet the Press" since 1999. It is the first time host George Stephanopoulos has delivered more viewers. His marquee guest might have helped: President-elect Barack Obama. Nielsen Media Research said Thursday that the ABC show was seen by 4.34 million viewers on Sunday, a whisker ahead of the 4.3 million who watched "Meet the Press." Obama's visit to "Meet the Press" on Dec. 7 was seen by 6.5 million people.

Melvin Avanzado, a 47-year-old Los Angeles attorney, understands why NBC is showing tape-delayed Olympics coverage to viewers in the Pacific and Mountain time zones. He understands about sponsorship dollars and maximizing viewership. He doesn't like it much, either. But Avanzado doesn't try to avoid results until he can watch warmed-over coverage that often doesn't end until midnight. "I'd have to totally unplug," he said. "Some people try.

Given that Fox's new high school show, "Glee," has already attracted a cult following, there was considerable speculation about how it would do in its official premiere Wednesday night. Turns out the show passed a key audition, but it's still too soon to tell its ultimate fate. "Glee" attracted 7.3 million viewers and won its time slot among adults ages 18 to 49, according to early data from Nielsen Media Research. That put "Glee" -- a kind of cross between "High School Musical" and "Freaks and Geeks" -- a strong No. 2 to NBC's "America's Got Talent" (9.7 million viewers)

Plenty of daytime shows are hurting for viewers. But the audience is positively fleeing the Daytime Emmys. Sunday's 36th Annual Daytime Emmy telecast -- which aired for two hours in prime time on the CW -- skidded to an all-time low of 2.2 million total viewers, according to preliminary data from Nielsen Media Research. That's a 58% plunge from last year's show on ABC. The closing days of summer seldom produce blockbuster audiences, and on Sunday what viewers there were flocked to an NFL preseason matchup between the Bears and the Broncos on NBC (9.9 million)
