World Series Game 6 postponed

Fox was geared up for a nice Wednesday-and-hopefully-Thursday conclusion to the World Series, but those plans have been overturned.

Major League Baseball announced today, five hours before the scheduled start of tonight’s scheduled Game 6, that the contest would be postponed because of bad weather in St. Louis, where the Cardinals trail the Texas Rangers, three games to two.

Fox has already had unpleasant experiences with weather and postponements in this postseason: Game 2 of the American League Championship Series was postponed on the afternoon of Oct. 9 because of reports of impending bad weather, only to see it turn out that the game would have been playable on time that night had MLB held out to see what would really happen.

Tonight, Fox will air back-to-back episodes of “Glee” in place of the World Series, while gearing up for Friday’s scheduled new episodes of “Kitchen Nightmares” and “Fringe” to be postponed if the Fall Classic reaches a seventh game.

A Friday Game 7 would obviously boost Fox’s ratings for that night, but probably wouldn’t achieve the viewer heights that a Thursday Game 7 would.

ABC will perhaps benefit most from tonight’s postponement. The Alphabet net has new episodes of every one of its Wednesday shows except “Modern Family” skedded for tonight. NBC, on the other hand, could see its premieres for “Chuck” and “Grimm” damaged.

From a baseball standpoint, the extra day off could improve pitching for both teams, particularly if there’s a Game 7, and keep offense down.
