Despite losing many of its viewers in the New York and Philadelphia areas because of its retransmission consent dispute with Cablevision, Fox TV on Wednesday night managed to record 8.34 million viewers for its National League Championship Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies. Joining the various commercial Internet sites providing details of the action, the Federal Communications Commission Wednesday night used its Twitter account to provide a running description of the game’s progress. “We’re filling in the baseball void for those without Fox-Cablevision,” the FCC said. The previous night’s coverage of the American League Championship Series on TBS landed 9.9 million viewers.
