Viewership was particularly strong in St. Louis, which has produced a local rating of 38.9 in watching the Cardinals and Giants split Games 1 and 2 in San Francisco. That is the highest two-game average of the eight NLCS in which the Cardinals have participated since 1996.
While that series will not resume until Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET, the ALCS will return to action tonight at 8 p.m.on TBS, with the teams playing Game 3 in Detroit.
