How did the World Series do as the Dodgers beat the Rays to take a 3-2 lead? The numbers weren’t even close. The World Series game peaked with an average of 8.579 million viewers on Fox.

To put it as simply as possible, the NFL crushed the MLB.

It also just goes to show that football will forever be king in America. Even a regular season game dominates the World Series.

When people are forced to choose between football and any other sport, football will absolutely win more times than not.

That’s just a fact.
