World Series Game Track. In the official nationals for Friday 10.30.2015, World Series Game 3 averaged 13.2 million viewers 2+ (above the 12.5 million average for Game 3 since 2006) but the adult 18-49 rating (3.2) was below the Game 3 average (3.6), as the median age of Game 3 crept up to 56.5 years, well above the first two Games and a meaningful three years above the Game 3 average.  The same story will go for Game 4 when we see the official nationals tomorrow: a Saturday airdate, on Halloween no less, means the audience will skew especially old.  Game 4 registered a 3.1 demo rating in the fast nationals, and that shouldn’t change substantially in the final numbers.  Game 5 scored a 4.8 fast national 18-49 rating Sunday, a nice bookend to the very strong rating for Game 1.

World Series Averages: Games 1-3. Through three games, the 2015 World Series continues to pace a fairly average levels since 2006 but way above last year and very close to 2010 (Rangers-Giants) in most demos.  The final track for Games 1-5 will be posted tomorrow morning.
