Fewer people watched the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians play Saturday night but ratings for Game 4 of the World Series were still the best since 2009, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Saturday night game earned a 10.5 rating, down from an 11 rating on Friday, which was the most-watched Game 3 in 12 years. Game 4 was still up 13 percent from last year, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The Cubs-Indians game was up against NCAA football on Saturday.

On Sunday, the Fox Sports broadcast will compete with Sunday Night Football and AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

The Cleveland Indians lead the series 3-1.
