Game 3 of the World Series on Friday 10.28.2016 averaged just under 19.4 million persons 2+ live+same day and a stellar 5.2 persons 18-49 rating, well above the Game 3 average since 2006 (13.2 million P2+ and a 3.7 P18-49 rating) and a new high for Game 3 since 2006.

This brings the average of Games 1-3 in 2016 to 18.7 million P2+, now the best since 2006 (see chart below).  The Game 1-3 average with P18-49 is now a 5.2 rating, tied for #2 since 2006 (behind only 2009’s Phillies-Yankees series).  But much of that gap should close when we see the official ratings for Games 4 and 5 from Saturday and Sunday loaded into the averages tomorrow.
