World Series commands high TV ratings
BOSTON (AP) -- BostonÔŅĹs 3-to-0 World Series championship-clinching victory over the St. Louis Cardinals received an 18-point-two rating and 28 share.
ThatÔŅĹs the highest for game four of a Series since 1995.
The average audience of 28-point-eight (m) million was the largest for a game four since 1991, when Minnesota and Atlanta went seven games in one of the most exciting series.
In Boston, the game averaged a 59 rating, beating each of the New England PatriotsÔŅĹ Super Bowl victories but falling slightly short of the rating for game seven of the 1986 World Series against the Mets.
Overall, post-season ratings were down six percent from last year.
