"I would rather have a seven-game series between any two teams than a four-game series between the Yankees and Dodgers," Fox Sports Media Group senior vp programming, research and content strategy Michael Mulvihill recently told The Hollywood Reporter.

You sir, are a lying liar who lies.

Just to paste from Nomo's post:

Rough news for Fox: the all-time low overnight ratings for Tuesday's game one of the World Series translated to the MLB championship's least-watched starter in modern TV metrics.

The first game between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants, an embarrassing 7-1 loss for the Royals, only pulled 12.19 million viewers according to final adjusted Nielsen ratings. That falls below the previous low set in 2012 when just a shade more viewers (50,000) tuned into see the Giants beat the Detroit Tigers.


NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE GIANTS

Three different opponents, yet consistently low ratings. That's amazing, and I love it.

I am tempted to record Stubbs' dance for this score

Orel said...

Do it!

karina said...

@Orel do you want to watch him dancing while he's just wearing boxers?

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'd dance nekked through the Castro with George Brett's smiling visage tattooed on my arse if I thought it would help.

Orel said...

Every bit helps, Stubbsy. Start shimmying.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Let's keep our powder dry in case things get even more desperate. We don't want stampede straight to DEFCON 1

Franklin Stubbs said...

Orel said...

This is like, what, DEFCON12?
