Did You Watch the World Series? [SPORTS POLL]
In case you missed it—and judging by the ratings, you probably did—the San Francisco Giants finished their World Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night. This year continued a trend in which fewer and fewer people are watching the World Series, especially if it’s a four-game sweep. So did you watch?
The seven previous World Series were the seven least-watched World Series ever, and since this year’s Fall Classic didn’t go six or seven games (which generally means a large increase in viewership), it will likely extend that streak to eight years. It also didn’t help that no major-market teams made it to the final showdown, but even if it had been Yankees-Dodgers, no one knows how big a rise in ratings that would mean, if any.
We’re big baseball fans, so we certainly checked in, but it seems like we didn’t have much company. How about you?
