Cubs-Indians most-watched World Series Game 3 since 2004
CHICAGO — Cleveland’s 1-0 World Series win over the Chicago Cubs was the most-watched Game 3 in 12 years.
Friday night’s game drew an 11.0 rating, 20 share and 19.4 million viewers on Fox, the network said Saturday. That was up 39 percent over the 7.9/15 and 13.2 million viewers for the New York Mets’ 9-3 blowout of Kansas City in the third game last year and the most for a Game 3 since Boston’s 4-1 victory over St. Louis in 2004, which drew a 15.7/24 and 24.4 million viewers on a Friday.
The rating is the percentage of television homes tuned to a telecast and the share is the percentage viewing among those households with televisions on at the time.
