No surprise here: The National League Championship Series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies averaged an anemic 2.8 rating and 6 share on TBS, down 61 percent from last year’s series between the New York Mets and the St. Louis Cardinals, which aired on Fox.
This year’s NLCS ended in a four game sweep with the Rockies sweeping the Diamondbacks.
A combination of late starting times (two games started after 9 p.m.), and “small” markets (where do the teams play? Tuscon and Colorado Springs?), and the four game sweep pretty much killed any ratings momentum this series had.
Then again, we don’t have to endure anymore commercials for “Frank TV”, with this generation’s answer to Pauly Shore, Frank Caliendo.
