NLCS Phillies Dodgers Baseball

Because the Dodgers-Phillies series only lasted 5 games, TBS coverage of the MLB LDS and the NLCS ended down versus last year’s coverage of the LDS and an ALCS that went seven games.

Over 18 games, TBS averaged a 3.3 U.S. household rating, a 3.8 cable rating and nearly 5.15 million watchers, according to Nielsen data. The cable mark was off 5% from 4.0 mark and down 4.4% from 5.38 million watchers for 22 postseason games a year ago.

The 2008 numbers were fueled by a seven-game American League Championship Series in which Game 6 (8.9 million) and Game 7 (13.4 million) of the Tampa Bay-Boston series were the two of the most-watched baseball telecasts in cable history.
