The Game 6 rainout seemingly put New York fans in a bind, pitting Game 6 between the Yankees and Angels on FOX directly opposite the Giants and Cardinals on NBC. It turned out the Yankees won the overnight-ratings game in a landslide.

Yankees-Angels drew a 26.4 rating and 40 share in the New York market. The Giants-Cardinals numbers paled in comparison: a 9.3 rating and 16 share. Consider that the Giants last NBC Sunday Night game (Week 2 at Dallas) reached a 19.3 rating locally.

The Yankees also beat the Giants nationally, although it was a much narrower victory. The Yankees drew an 11.4 national rating; the Giants drew a 10.4.
