World Series Out Paces Sunday Night Football in Ratings

Baseball’s World Series beat out the NFL in the Sunday night ratings war.

Last night’s game 4 of the World Series on Fox between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers scored a 10.1 over night rating, besting the Sunday Night Football (SNF) telecast of the Indianapolis Colts at the New Orleans Saints on NBC.  The NFL match-up, which was a Saints blowout, garnered a rating of 8.2.

When the two events went head-to-head last year, SNF came out on top with a rating of 11.6 (Steelers/Saints) compared to the World Series’ 10.4 (Rangers/Giants).

Here are the Top 10 local metered markets for SNF:

1. New Orleans, 50.9/66
2. Indianapolis, 27.1/40
3. Norfolk, 12.6/18
4. Baltimore, 12.0/19
5. Richmond, 11.8/16
6. Las Vegas, 11.6/18
