It’s no surprise that the final World Series game between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets stole the number one spot for Slingbox users this week. According to Nielsen, the 111th edition of the World Series brought in an estimated 17.2 million viewers for Game 5. Fans were eager to see who would take home the title as neither team had won a World Series in nearly 30 years.
Ultimately the Kansas City Royals prevailed, winning their first banner since 1985 when they beat out the St. Louis Cardinals to clinch the championship title. The Royals came close last year in their World Series matchup with the San Francisco Giants but ultimately fell short when the Giants won Game 7. With their 2015 victory, the Royals became the first team since the 1989 Oakland Athletics to win the World Series after losing the series the previous year.
We’ll be back next week with more top 10 lists.
