TV's Fastest-Growing Network Eclipses 5 Million Mark for First Time

New York - Sparked by a three-run sixth inning that turned a 4-3 deficit into a 6-4 lead and ultimately proved to be the winning margin, the San Francisco Giants last night took a commanding three-games-to-one lead over the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2014 National League Championship Series. The win put the Giants on the precipice of their third World Series appearance in five years, and viewership for the game set another record for FOX Sports 1, television's fastest growing network.

FOX Sports' coverage of NLCS Game 4 between the Cardinals and Giants, presented by T-Mobile, delivered 5.092 million viewers, making it the most-watched telecast in FOX Sports 1 history, breaking the previous mark of 4.367 million set on Oct. 12 for NLCS Game 2. This is the fourth time since FOX Sports 1's MLB postseason coverage began on Oct. 3 that the channel has broken a viewership record. FOX Sports 1's top four shows and six of its top 10 are 2014 MLB postseason games. Additional highlights follow:
