Vikings-Giants MNF Game Had Better Ratings Than World Series
At this point, we all know (not everyone is willing to admit) that football is America’s pastime and favorite sport. If you still wondered, that really bad Vikings-Giants game from Monday had better ratings than Game 1 of the World Series:
The latest demonstration of that fact is pointed out by our friends at Hardball Talk, who note that the Vikings-Giants game on ESPN on Monday night had a higher overnight rating than Game One of the World Series on FOX on Wednesday night. (Vikings-Giants had a 9.5 overnight rating, World Series Game One had a 9.4.)
For baseball, a 9.4 is actually pretty good. The fact remains though that even bad football is more popular than baseball’s most important game, even when two of the most popular teams are involved.
