Viewership Down For Marathon World Series Game 3

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Viewership for the Los Angeles Dodgers' 18-inning win over the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the World Series dropped 15 percent from last year, hurt by a game that ended at 12:30 a.m. PDT.

The Dodgers' 3-2 win, which took a Series-record 7 hours, 20 minutes, averaged 13,251,000 on Fox, the network said Saturday. That was down from an average of 15,483,000 for Houston's 5-3 win over the Dodgers last year, a game that lasted 3:46. This year's Game 3 was the lowest viewed since an average of 13,722,000 tuned in for the New York Mets' 9-3 win over Kansas City in 2015.

Boston's 8-4 win in the opener averaged 13,755,000 and its 4-2 victory in Game 2 averaged 13,442,000, Fox said.
