The Media Chart is a weekly look at what's topping the rankings and the ratings.

It's no surprise that the final two games of the World Series claimed the Nos. 1 and 2 spots on the media chart this week, maintaining MLB's lead from last week. As explained in our coverage, the historic matchup drew the biggest audience in more than a decade.

CBS ran awy with five of the top-10 spots on the chart this week with "60 Minutes," "The Big Bang Theory," "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles," and "Blue Bloods."
