As the New York Yankees were methodically moving into the second round of the post-season, their first round scored big numbers on TBS.
The Yankees earned a sweep, but the three ALDS victories last week cracked the Top 10, according to the Nielsen Company.
The playoff opener, Wednesday night against Minnesota, had the best showing–number one. The New York audience to the basic cable channel was 1.5 million with a 7.6 rating. Saturday night’s clincher was fifth for the week (1.2 million/6.1). Game two on Thursday night, likely hurt by the early evening start time, “struggled” to a ninth-place finish (1.1 million/5.6).
On WABC, Monday’s two-hour Dancing With The Stars fell short of number one (1.5 million/7.5). The result’s show held down fourth position (1.2 million/6.3).
A late start for 60 Minutes didn’t hamper viewing habits on WCBS. The venerable newsmagazine took number three (1.2 million/6.4).
