It was a great Sunday night for the Los Angeles Dodgers as they defeated the Atlanta Braves 4-3 to secure their ticket to their third World Series in four years. On top of that, the Game 7 of the National League Championship Series on Fox delivered another milestone with the best LCS overnight rating since 2017.
Game 7 delivered a 6.9/14 rating across Fox and FS1, which marks the best rating for an LCS game on any network since Game 7 of the 2017 ALCS (7.1/13), when the Houston Astros beat the New York Yankees. Last nights Dodgers-Braves showdown also received a major 41% boost over Game 7 of the 2018 NLCS (4.9/9), which saw the Dodgers beat the Milwaukee.
The game also proved that Los Angeles loves and supports their sports team: the L.A. market (18.4/35) drove overnight ratings to the best NLCS telecast on record and the best LCS result in since 2005. The Atlanta market (21.1/39) saw its best early number for a Braves game since 2004.
