  1. Damn that’s a lot of people watching the Cubs breaking their drought. This has to be the highest rated baseball game in 20 or so years.

  2. World Series overshadowed everything. Ratings may have been a notch higher if it hadn’t gone until like 12:25am because of the tie game and the rain delay.

    That game 7 game me anxiety! The last game 7 to have these numbers was Twins Vs Braves in game 7 when both went from worst to first in 1991!
