Given that it featured two smaller market teams with limited national appeal, I can’t say that this is surprising: The three-inning conclusion of the suspended Game 5 of the World Series attracted 19.8 million viewers on Wednesday night. Combined with those who watched the first five and a half innings Monday night, the game averaged […]
