World Series ratings some of the worst ever

TV ratings for Game 1 of the World Series: 8.8 overnight, which was the lowest Game 1 in World Series history. Despite a record-setting performance from Pablo Sandoval, and the presence of Justin Verlander, the game was a blowout.

TV ratings for Game 2 of the World Series: 8.8 overnight, which was down from last year’s Game 2. Two things working against MLB last night: Vikings/Bucs game on NFL Network (two Top 20 TV markets in Tampa and Minnesota, which are 13th and 15th, respectively) and a college football game on ESPN featuring Clemson (the South cares about Dabo and the Tigers, right?)
And probably the most insane:
World Series Game #1 had a 4.8 rating among Women 50+ and a 4.6 in Men 18-49
Kind of a shame, as game 2 was excellent.
