The ratings for Game 1 of the World Series are in, and they’re massive.

Game 1, which aired on FOX Tuesday night, brought in a 10.0 household rating in metered markets among adults ages 18-49 in the U.S, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A massive 12.62 million viewers reportedly tuned into the game, bumping it up from the 11.53 million who watched 2017’s Series opener when the Dodgers played the Astros.

Clocking in at Tuesday’s second-most watched network was NBC’s singing show “The Voice,” and its hit drama “This Is Us,” which brought in a 1.6 rating and a 2.1 rating, respectively.

On an interesting note…ABC’s spinoff of “Roseanne,” now called “The Conners,” brought in a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49, down 29 percent from its premiere last week.

Game 2 of the World Series, which will also take place in Boston, Mass., begins tonight at 8:09 p.m. on FOX. The Red Sox now lead the series 1-0.
