DETROIT (WKZO) -- Its baseball’s biggest show but the World Series between the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants is getting abysmally poor TV ratings this year. It could be that the two teams come from relatively small markets, or that there has been a lot of competition from other sports events on at the same time.

Maybe it’s the lack of scoring that is driving away viewers.

The latest Nielsen ratings shows that viewership for Fox's coverage of Game Two set a record low of just 12-point-three million viewers on average, watching the Giants blank Detroit Thursday from the West Coast 2 to zip. And to add insult to injury, Game One of the Fall Classic also registered its lowest ratings ever, drawing even fewer viewers than the second game.

The results from Game Three should be available soon.

Those aren’t anywhere near Super Bowl numbers.
