This year’s World Series is 2nd-least watched on TV

The Houston Astros’ six-game victory over the Philadelphia Phillies finished as the second least-watched World Series on television.

The six games averaged 11,784,000 on Fox, down 1.3% from the 11,940,000 for the Atlanta Braves’ six-game win over the Astros last year and ahead of only the 9,946,000 for the Los Angeles Dodgers’ six-game victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in 2020.

Houston’s 3-1 win in Game 6 on Saturday night was seen by 12,549,000 viewers on Fox, down 11% from 14,140,000 Atlanta’s 7-0 victory over the Astros in last year’s finale, played on a Tuesday night. Including Fox Deportes and streaming, this year’s Game 6 was viewed by 12,871,000.

Game 6 was played opposite several college football games, including Alabama-LSU on ESPN, Clemson-Notre Dame on NBC and Florida State-Miami on ABC.

The Series finished with a 6.1 Nielsen rating and 17 share. The rating was the second-lowest behind the 5.2 for 2020, which had a 12 share. This year’s share marked a 1% increase from last year.

Steep drop, but still season-high, for “Field of Dreams” sequel

I watched some of the game last year. I didn’t watch it at all this year. The gimmick has already worn out for me.

MLB’s “Field of Dreams” II simply could not live up to the original in the box office.

Thursday’s Cubs-Reds Major League Baseball “Field of Dreams” game from Dyersville, Iowa, averaged a 1.7 rating and 3.10 million viewers on FOX Thursday night — down nearly half from last year’s Yankees-White Sox game from the same site (3.2, 5.9M*). Viewership peaked at 3.46 million viewers from 8:15-8:30 PM ET.

Despite the sharp decline in ratings and viewership, the Cubs’ win still delivered the largest audience of the MLB regular season. The previous high was 2.64 million for a FOX regional window featuring Yankees-Red Sox.
