World Series avoids record low viewership
NEW YORK (AP) — It may be no solace to the Houston Astros, but the Washington Nationals’ comeback win in the World Series helped baseball avoid a dubious record.
The series’ seventh and deciding game reached 23.2 million people, eclipsing even “Sunday Night Football” and enabling the Series to average just under 14 million viewers per game, the Nielsen company said. The last game drew nearly 7 million more viewers than any of the other games.
Through five games, the series was on pace to be the least-watched Fall Classic ever.
At least for another year, San Francisco’s four-game sweep of Detroit in 2012 keeps the record of least popular series ever. It averaged 12.66 million viewers.
For the week of Oct. 28-Nov. 3, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: World Series Game 7: Washington at Houston, Fox, 23.22 million; NFL Football: New England at Baltimore, NBC, 22.03 million; World Series Game 6: Washington at Houston, Fox, 16.55 million; “NFL Pregame Show,” NBC, 15.7 million; NFL Football: San Francisco at Atlanta, Fox, 14.28 million; “Football Night in America, Part 3,” NBC, 12.19 million; “60 Minutes,” CBS, 11.04 million. NFL Football: Miami at Pittsburgh, ESPN, 10.42 million; “NFL Pregame Show,” Fox, 8.5 million; “The Voice” (Monday), NBC, 8.19 million.
Giants’ manager search has 3 finalists
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants have narrowed their search for a new manager to three finalists, a person with direct knowledge of the process said.
Former Phillies manager Gape Kapler, Astros bench coach Joe Espada and Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro are the final three vying to replace Bruce Bochy, the person said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the candidates’ names haven’t been made public.
Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi is taking his time making the hire. He has known since February that Bochy would retire.
The San Francisco Chronicle first reported the three finalists Wednesday.
