This season has been filled with sad tidbits about the Astros, but this might be one of the most depressing.
David Barron of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros’ win over the Reds was watched by an average of 1,092 households, which is the lowest in recorded history.
During no 15-minute period was the game watched by more than 0.18 percent of Houston’s televisions. Meanwhile, the Texans’ win over the Dolphins on Sunday afternoon was watched by an average of 485,127 households.
Just doing some quick match, that means approximately 444 times more people in Houston watched the Texans game than the Astros game.
