Normally, I don’t bother watching the World Series. The games always end after my normal bedtime. There’s no point in watching the game if I know I can’t see the end. It’s very annoying.
That’s one “perk” of being unemployed. I can stay up and watch the entire game.
Consider Thursday night’s Game 6. It ended at 12:40pm.. There’s no way I could have watched the end, if I had a job.
Contrast that with an NBA game, which almost always ends in 2 hours, or the Super Bowl, which is on a Sunday evening ending by 11pm.
That’s a very stupid MLB policy. The World Series games don’t normally end until 11pm or later. That maximizes short-term ad revenue. That alienates potential fans.
