Game 2 of the World Series averaged 8.2 percent of homes and 13.7 million viewers nationally Wednesday, down modestly from the figures for Game 1, in which the Royals beat the Mets, 5-4, in 14 innings.

The Royals' 7-1 victory in Game 2, which gave them a 2-0 series lead, attracted another mammoth audience in the Kansas City area, with 56.6 percent of homes tuned into the game.

In the New York area, 21.3 percent of homes watched. On a percentage basis, that was less than half the figure for Kansas City, but because New York is a vastly larger market, it represents a larger viewership.
