For all the gloom and doom about the ratings for the World Series, at least for one night there was an increase in viewership. According to Fox, Game 2 of the World Series had a five-percent increase from 2010 with an 8.9 rating and 14.3 million viewers, according to a release by the network.
The ratings also increased for Game 2 from Game 1. So far, Fox is averaging and 8.8 rating and 13.2 million viewers, up one percent from last season's first two games.
Perhaps, just perhaps, people who like baseball are tuning in and watching -- and all of those watching have been rewarded with great baseball.
Like Matt wrote earlier this week, there's little reason to worry about the ratings -- instead, sit back and enjoy a fantastic postseason.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @eyeonbaseball on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
