[October 24, 2008]  NEW YORK (AP) -- Television ratings for Game 1 of the World Series were down from last year.

DonutsThe Philadelphia Phillies' 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Fox on Wednesday night earned a 9.2 rating and 15 share, the network said Thursday.

That's down 12 percent from the 10.5 for the 2007 Game 1 between the Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies, but up 15 percent from the 8.0 for Cardinals-Tigers two years ago.

The rating is the percentage watching a program among homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned into the broadcast among those households with TVs on at the time.
