Even though the Mets are in freefall, their fans have not given up on watching them - yet.

Or maybe there is some morbid curiosity involved here.

Anyway, here are two interesting ratings tidbuts unearthed by WatchDog.

From 9:45 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, when a cut fiber caused SNY to lose its video from Arizona, the Mets game still averaged 1.73 percent of New York-area homes - not that bad for a late-night start without an actual picture.

From 2 to 2:15 a.m. Thursday, as the Mets were completing a lost weekend in the desert, SNY averaged 1.84 percent of homes - not that bad for a ridiculously late finish.

That's all for now. Carry on.
