Game 7, which saw the Nationals emerge victorious 6-2 over the Houston Astros, was watched by over 23 million total viewers, the biggest audience for a baseball game since the seventh and final game of the 2017 World Series which saw the Astros have better luck against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Overall, the 2019 World Series averaged just under 14 million total viewers, making it the least watched baseball pinnacle in five years. This year’s series was at the same level as the 2014 series which also went to a tense seventh game.

On CBS, “Survivor” led the night with a 1.1, followed by “Seal Team” with a 0.7 and “S.W.A.T.” with a 0.5.
“Modern Family” was the highest rated show on ABC Wednesday night at a 1.0. “The Goldberg” scored a 0.9, both “Schooled” and “Single Parents” came in at a 0.7, and finally “Stumptown” posted a 0.5.
