 NEW YORK (AP) -A blowout in Game 1 of the World Series had viewers tuning out as the night went on and the Boston Red Sox pulled away from the Colorado Rockies.
Boston's 13-1 win over Colorado on Wednesday drew a 10.5 fast national rating on Fox, up 31 percent from the record-low 8.0 for last year's Game 1. The 2006 World Series opener, though, was on a Saturday, a night when fewer people typically watch TV.
Major League Baseball tweaked its postseason schedule this year to increase the number of World Series games played on nights when fans are more likely to be in front of the television.
The 10.5 was the fourth-lowest rating for a World Series game on a night other than Friday or Saturday, when viewership tends to be lower, according to Nielsen Media Research.
The game earned an 11.2 rating at the start, slightly higher than for the first pitch of Boston's last World Series appearance in 2004, which drew an 11.1.
The rating grew to a 12.5 at 9 p.m., but had plummeted to an 8.1 two hours later after the Red Sox scored seven runs in the fifth inning.
