Friday Final Nationals: Giants-Cubs Game 1 on FS1 Jumps 21 Percent from Year-Ago Mets-Dodgers Opener

MacGyver”, “Hawaii Five-0” and “Blue Bloods” again helped CBS win Friday night among total viewers (9.2 million), adults 18-49 (1.2 rating/5 share), adults 25-54 (1.8/6) and a share with Fox for the lead among adults 18-34 (0.6/3).

The Chicago Cubs’ 1-0 victory over the NL Wild Card winner San Francisco Giants in Game 1 of the “National League Division Series” was a ratings winner for FS1 with 5.7 million viewers, drawing the network’s second-best audience to-date (behind only Houston-Kansas City ALDS Game 5 in 2015: 5.944 million).

The game’s viewership was up 21 percent from last year’s NLDS Game 1: N.Y. Mets at L.A. Dodgers which had also aired on a Friday night but on TBS.

Earlier in the day on FS1, NLDS Game 1: L.A. Dodgers at Washington drew 2.2 million viewers — up 8 percent from 2014’s NLDS Game 1 (San Francisco-Washington) on FS1 in the Friday afternoon window.
