Not only is the network expected to retain its lead, but Fox projects that it will close the deal by the largest November sweeps victory margin in five years.
Fox is also up 20 percent from its November 2008 sweeps period and is the only network to post a gain. ABC is in second place with 3.1. CBS is a close third with 3.0, NBC is fourth with 2.6, and the CW has a 1.2. ABC is expected to come out on top if sports programing is excluded from the mix.
It only took 20 years, but Fox finally did it.
