Game 1 Ratings: Eh.
The early ratings are in from Game 1, and it's about as expected: down from last year (Red Sox-Rockies), up from the year before (Cards vs. [my beloved] Tigers).
Here's what the Associated Press says:
The Philadelphia Phillies' 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Fox on Wednesday night earned a 9.2 rating and 15 share, the network said Thursday.
That's down 12 percent from the 10.5 for the 2007 Game 1 between the Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies, but up 15 percent from the 8.0 for Cardinals-Tigers two years ago.
The rating is the percentage watching a program among homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned into the broadcast among those households with TVs on at the time.
