    The ABC college game had 10.37 million viewers.

    WS game 3 had 9.84 million viewers.

    Think about that.... basically, a run-of-the-mill college game of the week beat the World Series, head-to-head.

    I heard Versus is looking for more programming.

    So, since the ratings are below that of a college football game, does that mean the World Series champion is in some way illegitimate this year?

    World Series games 1, 2, and 4 were in the top 16 of the Nielsen Ratings for the week.

    Penn St.-Ohio St. was a "run-of-the-mill" game?

    Yes. It's the Big Ten. Everything there is run of the mill. [SECFanboi]

    And if the game started on time, Game 3 would have had at least 1.5 million more viewers.

    So, is there really a point to this thread?

    I'd watch a good MAC game over a World Series featuring teams I could care less about.
