Game 2 Posts 6% Year-to-Year Increase

New York - Ratings for FOX Sports' coverage of the 2015 World Series between the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals, who now boast a two-games-to-none advantage, continued tracking above last year's as Game 2 Wednesday night posted a 9.3/15 overnight household rating/share from 8:00-11:00 PM ET on FOX, +6% over last year's Giants-Royals Game 2 (8.8/14), resulting in the best two-game average since 2010.

World Series Game 2 Overnight Highlights:

- FOX's 9.3/15 in prime time projects to be the network's best performance for a Wednesday night since March of 2015.

- Game 2 drove FOX to a second straight first-place finish in prime time among the metered markets (preliminary): FOX - 9.3/15; CBS - 5.1/8; NBC - 4.5/7; and ABC - 4.3/7.

- FOX is projected to win the night in prime time among Adults 18-49, also for the second consecutive night.

- Interestingly, FOX averaged a 9.5/15 from 10:15-10:30 PM ET but jumped to 10.3/17 from 10:30-10:45 which coincided with the conclusion of the GOP Debate on CNBC.

World Season through Game 2

- The World Series on FOX is averaging a 10.0/17 among the metered markets, up +19% over last year's 8.4/13, and is the best two-game average for the World Series since 2010 (10.2/17).

WORLD SERIES AUDIENCE OFF TO BEST START SINCE 2010

Game 2 Posts 6% Year-to-Year Audience Increase with 100% Jump in Male Teens

New York - While Game 1 was punctuated with late-night drama, Game 2 of the 2015 World Series goes down in baseball lore for the dominant performance of Kansas City Royals starter Johnny Cueto who made it a game to remember, tossing a two-hit complete game, befuddling a strong New York Mets offense and leading the Royals to a 7-1 victory and an enviable 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

According the fast national figures release this afternoon by Nielsen, the game posted an 8.2/14 household rating/share, with 13.7 million viewers, a +4% increase in rating and +6% in average audience compared to Game 2 a year ago (Giants-Royals, 7.9/14, 12.9 million), making it the most-watched World Series Game 2 since 2011 (Rangers-Cardinals, 14.3 million).
