AMERICA'S GAME OF THE WEEK is Weekend's Most-Watched Broadcast

New York - Led by the 2017 World Series each night in prime time, in addition to a nail-biting finish in Saturday's marquee Big Ten matchup and Sunday's NFL doubleheader, FOX Sports' GREATEST WEEKEND EVER generated more than 23.4 billion minutes of sports television consumed. From Friday, Oct. 27 to Sunday, Oct. 29, the FOX broadcast network had its biggest non-Super Bowl weekend in history, according to Nielsen Media Research.

"This weekend was an incredible opportunity for FOX Sports, and recording more than 23 billion minutes watched on FOX exceeded our admittedly great expectations," said FOX Sports President and Executive Producer Eric Shanks. "With an unmatched array of properties and compelling games, our impressive slate of events strengthens our position as the leader in live events. This weekend is a credit to both our production teams and our partners at the National Football League, Big Ten Conference and Major League Baseball."

FOX Sports' GREATEST WEEKEND EVER began Friday night with the Astros' 5-3 victory in World Series Game 3, which garnered 15,675,000 viewers on FOX and recorded 3.7 billion minutes consumed. The game is the second most-watched Game 3 since 2005 and earned FOX the No. 1 spot in prime time.

The action shifted to the gridiron on Saturday afternoon, with a highly-anticipated matchup between two top 10 teams, Penn State and Ohio State. The game peaked from 7:00 to 7:15 PM ET at 14,357,000 viewers and scored a record-breaking 9,868,000 viewers on average, in addition to 2.2 billion minutes consumed, ranking as FOX's most-watched regular season college football game of all time.

Saturday night saw a return to the ballpark where the Dodgers evened the Series with a 6-2 win in Game 4, which recorded 15,400,000 viewers on FOX and 3.0 billion minutes consumed, making it the second most-watched Saturday night World Series game since 2004 and another primetime victory for the network.

On Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins in AMERICA'S GAME OF THE WEEK was the weekend's most-watched broadcast across all networks with 22,019,000 viewers and 4.2 billion minutes consumed. Earlier that day, the FOX NFL regional window posted 12,444,000 viewers and 2.3 billion minutes consumed.

Rounding out FOX Sports' GREATEST WEEKEND EVER on Sunday night, World Series Game 5 featured an incredible extra-inning battle of power hitters that ended in a late-night 13-12 Astros victory. The game earned 18,940,000 viewers and recorded 6.2 billion minutes consumed, scoring FOX's third consecutive primetime win and the network's most-watched telecast in primetime since Super Bowl LI.

FOX's weekend programming also featured pregame, halftime and postgame coverage, combining for an additional 1.8 billion minutes consumed across NFL (920,544), MLB (716,486) and college football (188,995) programming.

FOX Sports' GREATEST WEEKEND EVER also extended to FOX Deportes, with record-breaking viewership for World Series Games 3 (380,000), 4 (375,000) and 5 (496,000). Each game ranks as the most-watched game in Spanish language television history versus previous Games 3, 4 and 5. Sunday night's Game 5 also ranks as the second most-watched MLB postseason game ever in Spanish language television history.

FOX Sports GO, FOX Sports' streaming app, found success in non-linear audiences. Saturday's Penn State-Ohio State game was the best performing college football telecast in FOX Sports GO history with an average minute audience of 104,228. Sunday's AMERICA'S GAME OF THE WEEK had an average minute audience of 131,578, the app's third-best regular season NFL telecast ever. World Series Games 3, 4 and 5 were all up over their 2016 counterparts: Game 3 up +6% (129,262 vs. 117,226), Game 4 up +30% (135,328 vs. 100,005) and Game 5 up +8% (171,801 vs. 158,629). Sunday night's Game 5 was also the seventh-best performing event of any sport in FOX Sports GO history.
