- Charlotte led all markets with an impressive 54.2/71 and Phoenix ranked third with a 43.9/65, both marking the highest postseason ratings ever for the FOX station in each market.

- The Top 10 markets are as follows: Charlotte - 54.2/71; Greensboro - 50.9/63; Phoenix - 43.9/65; Greenville - 43.2/53; Raleigh-Durham - 40.0/55; Norfolk - 37.8/50; New Orleans - 35.3/47; Richmond - 34.9/43; Buffalo - 32.8/44; Las Vegas - 31.2/46.
