According to early overnight numbers, Fox averaged a whopping 25.2 household rating as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 at Progressive Field — winning their first World Series in 108 years.

Those numbers top the ratings for every other game this series, the Hollywood Reporter noted.

As the final numbers come out, it could count as the most-watched baseball game in over 15 years.
