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.

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).
