ANAHEIM -- Three of the four highest-rated Angels telecasts on FOX Sports West to date came in the first three games of this Freeway Series, a byproduct of both the Angels' success and the fact that much of Los Angeles is unable to watch Dodgers broadcasts due to ongoing disputes between Time Warner Cable and other pay-TV providers.
Wednesday's contest from Angel Stadium topped Tuesday's game, which previously topped Monday's series opener, for the second-most-watched Angels game in FOX Sports West history, according to Nielsen. It drew 269,000 households and scored a household rating of 4.74.
The most watched game on FOX Sports West came on June 22, 1998, also between the Angels and Dodgers. According to a FOX Sports West representative, this is the Angels' highest-rated season in seven years.
