The World Series continued to dominate on Fox Thursday night, though early returns underestimate Game 2’s strength. With time zone adjustments, the Boston-St. Louis showdown averaged a 3.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 13.4 million viewers.
With Wednesday’s game rising to a 4.2 rating with adults 18-49 and 14.4 million viewers in the finals, the series is thus far pacing 13 percent ahead of last years’ in viewers.
The Big Bang Theory (4.9 adults) held steady with last week, while recently renewed The Millers (2.8 adults) and The Crazy Ones (2.3 adults) fell four-tenths and one-tenth of a point, respectively.
