NEW YORK (AP) - Television viewership for Game 1 of the World Series was down slightly from last year, when the average rating matched a record low.
The St. Louis Cardinals' 3-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday on Fox earned an 8.7 rating and 14 share. That's down 2 percent from the 8.9/15 for Game 1 in 2010 between the Rangers and the Giants, with San Francisco a bigger market than St. Louis.
Fox said Thursday that the rating in St. Louis was a 47.3/66, the highest for a local market for Game 1 since Boston in 2007. Dallas averaged a 34.2/51, up slightly from last year.
