Few watch Series

The San Francisco Giants’ sweep of the Detroit Tigers set a record low for World Series television ratings. The four games on Fox averaged a 7.6 rating and 12 share, Nielsen Media Research said Monday. The previous low was an 8.4 for the 2008 Phillies-Rays and 2010 Giants-Rangers series, which each went five games. Last year’s Cardinals-Rangers World Series went the full seven games and built momentum to average a 10.0/16. The Giants’ 2-0 win in Game 3 on Saturday earned a 6.1/11, and their 4-3, 10-inning victory in the clincher Sunday drew an 8.9/14. Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with TVs tuned into a program. – Associated Press
