Adweek’s week-long Fall TV Preview—spotlighting each broadcast network’s new fall shows—begins today with Fox, which was the only broadcaster to climb in the 18-49 demo season rankings during each of the last two seasons. It rose from No. 4 to No. 3 in 2015-16, and then jumped to second place last season, largely on the strength of the Super Bowl and last fall’s epic World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians.
