I watched MNF and MNF only. I watched game one of the World Series. I had intended on watching the entire series but when I learned that football games would be effected to cater to the series I stopped watching. I am boycotting baseball until they get their season finished up in early October like their supposed to. :-[

Really my boycott only counts to the World Series since I never watch baseball anyway. :-B

My boycott of the World Series has to do with two of the more obnoxious East Coast teams with the most obnoxious East Coast fans having to face each other. This is one World Series where I wish both teams came off the losing end. :-B

If I didn't have like 4 leagues riding on the MNF, I woulda watched the Series almost exclusively, but instead I was a really annoying channel surfer }:-)

I watched the World Series, and honestly, I've got to believe that got the majority of the sports viewership. Given that it's somewhat close and you asked on a fantasy football site, the actual results for what people watched are likely largely in favor of the World Series.

I watched MNF mostly. When the commercials were so bad I couldn't handle it any more I checked the Baseball score briefly. I look at the standings through out the year but don't really like Baseball. The major difference in team salary turns me off. How one team could spend over 200 million and another spend in the 30's baffles me.

Championships can't be bought in Football.

I was pretty much half and half. If it wasn't the WS it would have been exclusively MNF.

When I first read this I said "no way." MNF has been pulling in a record number of viewers since the season began. Anyway I was wrong. I couldn't find a whole lot of comparative ratings, but Game 5 did pull in more viewers from the adults age 18/49 demographic, it was not by a large margin though. Game 5 produced a 5.3/14 rating, while MNF produced a 5.1/14 rating. That the premier event in all of baseball barely beats out a regular season football game for ratings I think this shows is that Football truly is Americas pastime. Especially since New York holds the largest viewing market. Even College Football pulled in decent ratings against the World Series during game, ABC's "Saturday Night College Football" regional telecast of Oregon vs. USC and Texas vs. Oklahoma State pulled in ratings of 3.3/12, while the World Series series had 4.7/16.

The World Series, for instance, is trending at least a third higher in ratings in the ad-centric adult 18-49 demographic than last year, with Monday night's Game 5 victory by the Philadelphia Phillies over the New York Yankees pitching a 5.3/14 rating and share in the demo. This easily led to Fox finishing first for the night, with the closest competition not one of its broadcast brethren, but rather ESPN's "Monday Night Football" victory by the New Orleans Saints over the Atlanta Falcons, which had a 5.1/14.
