Tigers-Yankees pulls in 9.7 million

Nyy
Nearly 10 million viewers overall watched Detroit’s tense 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees in the fifth and final game of their American League Division Series on TBS, the biggest audience for a Division Series game in cable television history.

The viewership for the game, 9.72 million, was also the most for a Division Series game on any network since a 2005 Game 5 between the Yankees and Angels.

The numbers made TBS the highest-rated cabler Thursday and No. 3 even if you include broadcast. On the down side for the TV biz, the defeat eliminated the Big Apple from the postseason.

Two more Division Series Game 5s are on tap for today: Arizona at Milwaukee (2 p.m. Pacific) and St. Louis at Philadelphia (5:30 p.m.).
