Since it seems like all sport writers care about this days is stupid TV ratings, I am glad that the World Series beat MNF. And it is a big deal, because MNF has registered seven of the top 10 all-time biggest household audiences in cable history.

From USA Today:

One day after the World Series was beaten in the ratings for the first time by a regular-season NFL game, Fox's 2010 World Series coverage bounced back to beat ESPN's Monday Night Football in the TV ratings race Monday.

Fox's telecast of the San Francisco Giants' series-clinching 3-1 win over the Texas Rangers drew a 10.6 overnight rating, according to Dan Bell of Fox. That's 23% higher than the 8.6 rating for Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts' 30-17 victory against the Houston Texans on ESPN.


Take that NFL!

See,
I donít care too much about the Super Bowl, because I know many, many people tune in just for the commercials and the halftime show, like I do. In my opinion, if you take the World Series, and at the bottom of the seventh inning you have a show with Lady Gaga, and in addition you get to show the best commercials from Doritos and Coca Cola, believe me, the World series would have Super Bowl-level ratings. Thank God, the World Series is still a sportís competition, not some media spectacle like the Super Bowl is.
