Top Broadcast and Cable TV Sports Originals for Friday, October 27, 2023
Game 1 of the 2023 World Series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Texas Rangers averaged 9.172 million viewers on Fox (and an additional 182,000 on Fox Deportes). Pretty sure that will go down as a record low for a World Series game one, even including the 2020 COVID Bubble series, but depending on how the Fox Deportes and any streaming get added in…I’ll leave that to others to sort out!
While the commentary will likely focus on the markets involved, arguably that the World Series began on a Friday was also a big factor. In recent years the World Series has begun on Tuesday nights.
