INDIANS GAME 3 WIN OVER CUBS IS BEST METERED MARKET RATING FOR A WORLD SERIES GAME 3 SINCE 2005

Chicago, IL - Playing host to its first World Series game in 71 years, Wrigley Field served as the stage for Friday night's Game 3 as the visiting Cleveland Indians notched a close 1-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Last night's contest scored a 12.4/22 overnight rating/share according to Nielsen Media Research, the best metered market rating for a World Series Game 3 since 2005's extra-inning game between the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros (13.1/23), which aired on a Tuesday night.

World Series Game 3 is up +36% over last year (vs. 9.1/16; Kansas City Royals vs. New York Mets) and up +53% over 2014 (vs. 8.1/13; Kansas City Royals vs. San Francisco Giants). In primetime (8:00 PM - 11:00 PM ET), FOX averaged an 11.9/21, its best performance for a Friday night since 2011's World Series Game 7.

In a tension-filled 9th inning that saw the Cubs get the potential tying and game-winning runners on-base amplified the viewing interest of the country as World Series Game 3 peaked with a 15.7/30 just after 11:30 PM ET, shortly after the final out was recorded.

Through three games, the 2016 World Series is averaging a 12.1/21 in the metered markets, which is up +25% over last year (vs. 9.7/17), +46% over 2014 (vs. 8.3/14) and ranks as the best average for the World Series since 2009 (vs. 12.7/21).

Cleveland led all markets by delivering a 39.2/60 overnight rating/share with Chicago posting a strong 35.1/57.

Fast Nationals have been ordered for last night's Game 3 and will be made available later today.
