Small market teams and bad weather contributed to a decline in TV viewership for baseball’s two recently completed league championship series.

The NLCS on TBS, with the St. Louis Cardinals beating the Milwaukee Brewers in six games, averaged a 2.9 rating. That’s down 43 percent from the 2010 ALCS on the cable channel, when the six-game Rangers-Yankees series averaged a 5.1.

The ALCS on Fox between the Texas Rangers and the Detroit Tigers averaged a 4.4 over six games, down 20 percent from the 5.5 for the six-game Giants-Phillies NLCS on the network last season.

Ratings measure the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program.
