Good news for the Angels: The last seven World Series game seven's have been won by the home team.

Good news for the Giants: Every postseason series this year has been won by the road team.


Hernandez vs. Lackey:
Will probably be a high scoring game - Advantage Angels.

I can't believe it's gone 7 games...well ok I can believe it. I do hope the Angels win though. I always like to see the underdogs win (and the Angels had the most outside chance of winning the WS this year I believe).

Question: Does anybody outside of California care about this series? I dare say that neither of these teams has a HUGE following (i.e., the Yanks or BoSox).

To pre-empt any questions...I live in the Bay Area.

Wow. Only 8 1/2 hours til gametime . For the record, I live in Florida, and I have watched every game in the series. I am not a Giants fan, but I am a Bonds fan.

True or not, how are the ratings so far? A "true" baseball fan could care about who wins, but I guess my question should've been, how are the ratings outside of California? Or how are the ratings in general?

More good news for the Angels: 7 of the last 8 teams down 3-2 when going home for 2 games have won both the games to win the Series.

GO ANGELS!

Hey Luddy, you heading out to Yerba Buena Gardens? It was pretty fun last night when I was there... everyone brought out lawn chairs and booze (well, you had to hide it), and food.

The fact that the games are on the West Coast doesn't help matters.

Games don't start until 8:30 pm on the East Coast and usually don't end until around midnight. Combine this with the fact that there is a larger portion of the US population on the right coast than on the left coast and bam, your ratings will drop.

I'm not even sure if the Giants deserves to win. The could have put this series away by now if the won game 2 and game 6. One opportunity too many.

because the question was over whether people actually care about the game
and ratings are how you judge this

ANAHEIM, Calif. A blowout in Game 5 of the World Series produced another new television ratings low.

San Francisco's 16-4 victory over Anaheim on Thursday night got an 10.0 rating and 17 share on Fox, Nielsen Media Research said yesterday.

The rating, the lowest ever for Game 5 and the second-lowest for any game, was down 31 percent from Game 5 last year, the New York Yankees' 3-2, 12-inning victory over Arizona, which got a 14.4/24. This year's overnight was down 24 percent from the last regional World Series, the 2000 Subway Series between the Yankees and New York Mets. The Yankees' 4-2 Series-winning victory in Game 5 that year got a 13.1/21.

This year's World Series also has drawn record lows for an opener (9.4), Game 2 (11.9), Game 3 (10.8) and Game 4 (11.8).

Before this year, the record low for any game was the 10.4 for last year's opener, which beat the 11.3 for Game 1 in 1997 between Cleveland and Florida.

Fox's five-game average of 10.8/17 is 25 percent below last year's five-game average of 14.4/24. While last year's World Series went seven games, its 15.7 rating was the third-lowest ever, ahead of only the 2000 Subway Series (12.4) and the Yankees' four-game sweep of San Diego in 1998 (14.1).

Excluding the markets of the teams involved this year and last year, the Eastern time zone was down 34 percent, from a 13.7 to a 9.0. Central decreased 18 percent (13.1 to 10.8), Mountain declined 31 percent (14.7 to 10.1) and Pacific increased 10 percent (15.1 to 16.6).

Fox even lost the night in prime time to CBS, which had a 12.6/19 to Fox's 9.7/15 from 8-11 p.m. EDT. Competition includes "Friends" on NBC, "Survivor" on CBS and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

The rating is the percentage of TV households in the United States watching a broadcast, and each national point represents 1,055,000 homes. The share is the percentage watching a program among those households with televisions on at the time.

It seems like they need to change the time of game. It conflicted most popluar TV shows.
