- FOX is projected to win the night among Households and Adults 18-49.

- ALCS Game 1 is projected to deliver FOX its best Saturday night prime time since the NFL playoffs in January.

- Despite competition from a Michigan football game, Detroit led all markets (26.5), +23% from Detroit's rating for 2011 ALCS Game 1 on FOX (21.5/38); Boston followed (21.8/42).

- Viewership steadily grew throughout the night: 8:00-8:15 - 2.4/5; 9:00-9:15 - 3.3/6; 10:00-10:15 - 4.7/9; 11:00-11:15 - 4.7/9; 12:00-12:15 AM ET - 5.5/12
