Update: Per Fox Sports PR the game drew 7.291 million viewers easily surpassing last week’s game 4 of the Giants-Cubs series (6.368 million) as the most-watched FS1 telecast ever. The game peaked with 8.228 million viewers between 10:30 and 10:35 p.m. ET and set record high overnight ratings for FS1 in both Los Angeles (10.8) and Chicago (23.9).
The game averaged an additional 291,000 on Fox Deportes, making it the most-watched LCS game ever on Spanish-language TV.
The Los Angeles Dodgers win over the Chicago Cubs in game 2 of the NLDS to even the series at one game apiece drew a 5.0/8 overnight rating share on FS1.
Via Fox Sports’s EVP of research, Michael Mulvihill:
5.0/8 for Game 2 of the NLCS. Top FS1 overnight ever and likely to surpass Cubs-Giants Game 4 to become new most-watched FS1 event ever.
