The final game of the National League Championship Series brought record numbers to Fox Sports 1. The Chicago Cubs’ win over the Los Angeles Dodgers scored a 2.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 9.71 million viewers, both records for the channel.

The game also more than doubled the 18-49 rating of its closest competition — the post-game show, also on FS1. An afternoon college football game on ESPN (Wisconsin vs. Iowa) was the next-best show of the day at 1.0.
