FS1's top three most-watched programs are now MLB postseason games: 2015 Astros-Royals ALDS Game 5, followed by 2014 NLCS Game 4 and 2014 NLCS Game 5 (4,891,000). Additional highlights follow:

Astros-Royals ALDS Game 5

· Building off the momentum of the Blue Jays-Rangers ALDS Game 5, initial tune-in to Astros-Royals was 5,038,000 viewers from 8:00-8:15 PM ET and peaked in the 10:30-10:45 PM ET quarter hour at 6,708,000 viewers.

· Astros-Royals Game 5 is up +9% in viewership compared to the last primetime ALDS Game 5 which came in 2013 (A's-Tigers, 5,445,000), with double-digit demo increases: Adults 18-34, +35%, A18-49, +20% and A25-54, +15%.

Rangers-Blue Jays ALDS Game 5

· Earlier in the day, Rangers-Blue Jays ALDS Game 5 proved to be the second most-watched weekday afternoon telecast in FS1 history with 3,199,000 viewers. The only weekday afternoon telecast on FS1 to beat it is 2014 Dodgers-Cardinals NLDS Game 4 (3,267,000 viewers).

2015 ALDS Summary

· The 2015 ALDS on FS1 averaged 2,795,000 viewers, off 10% from the NLDS on FS1 last year (3,120,000). However, because FS1 had two additional games this year, total viewing of the LDS round on FS1 was up +20% (14.2 gross rating points this year versus 11.8 last year).

· Including both Wild Card games, the 2015 MLB postseason across all networks is averaging 4,048,000 viewers, +17% through the complete Division Series last year (3,449,000). This is the best postseason-to-date average through Day 7 of the Division Series since 2010 (4,294,000 viewers), which bodes well for the World Series on FOX.

· The 2015 LDS across TBS and FS1 has delivered 39.68 gross national household rating points to date, a 57% increase over the combined TBS-FS1 LDS output last year (25.26), with Game 5 of the Mets-Dodgers NLDS still to play.
