Tools

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Giants' 8-3 win over the Detroit Tigers set a record low television rating for a World Series opener.

Fox says Wednesday night's game received a 7.6 rating and 12 share, and that it was seen by 12.2 million viewers, according to fast national ratings by Nielsen Media Research.

The rating dropped 13 percent from the 8.7/14 for St. Louis' 3-2 victory over Texas in Game 1 last year, which averaged 14.2 million viewers. That broke the low set the previous year when the Giants' 11-7 win over the Rangers received an 8.9.

The rating is the percentage of television households tuned to a program, and the share is the percentage of homes watching among those households with TVs on at the time.
