Nielsen: 23.5 Million Saw Game 7 of World Series

An estimated 23.5 million people watched the San Francisco Giants’ 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals in Game 7, enabling the matchup to escape the distinction of least-watched World Series.

The Nielsen company says more people watched Wednesday night’s contest than any series game since the 2011 Game 7 between St. Louis and Texas.

It was also 10 million more people than tuned in to any of the previous six games between the Giants and Royals. Overall, the series averaged 13.8 million viewers, second only to the Giants’ four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers in 2012 as the series with the lowest viewership. (AP)
