The Chicago Cubs dramatic extra innings World Series victory over the Cleveland Indians earned a remarkable 32.5 household rating. That means about 291,000 television households in the Milwaukee area watched the game on Fox affiliate WITI-TV. (Though Joe Buck haters might have had the sound down.)
That’s twice the rating of first game.
Also: I previously wrote about a Milwaukee native John Scheinfeld’s 2010 film about the Cubs called “We Believe.” He previously directed “The US v. John Lennon” and his latest film “Chasing Trane,” about John Coltrane, is touring the festival market.
