FS1 Drives New Nielsen Mark with Cards-Giants

The Cardinals’ late-inning, long-ball dramatics helped Fox Sports 1 ring up the most-watched telecast in its history on Sunday night.

The delivery eclipsed the 14-month-old network’s previous high-water Nielsen mark of 3.92 million viewers for its coverage of the Giants’ National League Division Series-clincher versus the Washington Nationals on Oct. 7.
