Since the world series game 7 on FOX will be at the same time as the Emmy's on CBS ... which will be watched more by the American Public?

I'll be watching FOX, but I think more TV's will be tuned to CBS.

I voted WS but I wouldn't be shocked to find that people are switching back and forth.

I imagine I'll be flipping between the WS on FOX and the Jets/Saints on ESPN... but WS ratings have been flat, so the Emmys will most likely squeak by.

Actually, I don't really have to watch the emmy's live to enjoy it, but watching the repeat of a Yankee's lost would dampen the thrill.

Do you think the people in charge of the Emmys can create a believable reason to move it a third time?


Game 7 will win.

HBO...
Fox, this series has gotten so much attention, I think a lot of people will be tuning in.

I'm sure that Game 7 dominated.

Just seeing Rudy Giuliani sitting there as the D'backs were running out onto the field was priceless.

Wearing his Yankee cap with FDNY on it.

This has benefitted so much from 911 and not by choice.

Take a look this guy cheated on his wife, flopped on prosecuting murderous cops, the whole mess with the
homeless people, wouldn't meet with black leaders and
even I thought he should be president a couple weeks ago.

What a difference two months makes.

what was the thread topic again???

well the game numbers are in. 72 million different people watched part of or all of the WS game 7. Highest rated WS game since 1991 game with the Braves vs. the Twins.

edited to add: 89.6 percent of all television sets in Phoenix were tuned to the game!
