Nielsen ratings also estimate that 377,000 adults ages 18 and over tuned in to WLS-TV. That makes this game the highest-rated Cubs broadcast on the 2015 season… so far. Additionally, for the Adults 25-54 demographic, WLS-TV pulled in a 3.5 rating, making that the highest for a Cubs game seen on local television by that demo this season.
