On Tuesday night, the first game of the 2014 World Series drew just 12.2 million viewers to Fox, making it the lowest-rated Game 1 on record. Game 2 on Wednesday night fared somewhat better, with 12.9 million people tuning in.
For me it’s the start time. With an 8pm start time, that means at the earliest it will be off is around 11:00.
On the odd chance, it is a good game then it could go longer. So I’d rather just not see any of it, instead of missing the most exciting part.
