Wednesday Final Nationals: Yankees-Indians Game 5 on FS1 is Most-Watched ALDS Game in Six Years

CBS was Wednesday night’s leader in total viewers (7.3 million).

A Fox-owned network was tops in adult demos but it was not the usual Fox broadcast network on this Wednesday (although they still led in female demos). FS1 was No. 1 on TV in all adult and male demos, courtesy of the deciding Game 5 of the “2017 American League Division Series” with the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians.

The 2017 American League Division Series as the most-watched League Division Series in FS1 history with an average audience of 3.809 million viewers over the seven Yankees-Indians and Red Sox-Astros games on the network.

This year’s American League Division Series is up +3 percent over last year’s National League Division Series on FS1 (vs. 3,690,000), and up +36 percent over 2015’s American League Division Series on FS1 (vs. 2,795,000).

Wednesday’s Yankees-Indians Game 5 posted 7.61 million viewers across FS1 (7,261,000), FOX Deportes (207,000) and FOX Sports GO (142,000); the most-watched League Division Series game ever on each platform. The game peaked from 11:15 to 11:30 PM ET with 9,175,000 viewers on FS1.

On FS1, last night’s game was the third most-watched telecast in FS1 history and the most-watched telecast since Cubs-Dodgers Game 6 of the 2016 National League Championship Series. It also ranks as the most-watched American League Division Series game on any network since 2011.
