NEW YORK (AP) The NL Championship Series had its largest television audience since 2010 despite lasting just four games.

The New York Mets' sweep of the Chicago Cubs in a matchup of big-market teams averaged 7.9 million viewers on TBS. The network said Thursday that was the most since the six-game Giants-Phillies series five years ago on Fox.

The audience was up 55 percent from last year's four-game ALCS on TBS between the small-market Royals and Orioles.
