If you were near a TV on Wednesday night, chances are — even if you're not a sports fan — you were probably watching FOX at 8:21 p.m. Your eyes were likely glued to the screen as Madison Bumgarner threw his 185th pitch in four days, you may have held your breath as the ball sailed into foul territory, and you probably didn't blink as you watched Pablo Sandoval come underneath it and clinch the win for the Giants. So it should come as no surprise that this was the number one viewed moment of the 2014 World Series. But what were the other moments everyone was watching? TiVo has broken down the numbers to come up with a list of the top 10 moments from games 1-7. Here they are:

Also an interesting finding was the top 10 ads of game 7, or as TiVo puts it, "most engaging." TiVo notes they determine the list by looking at the number of viewers in the 15-minute period that surrounds the ad, and the change in viewership numbers during this time reflects how engaged people were with the given ad. We're not too sure we adhere to this method, as we stopped turning the channel after the 7th inning stretch — regardless of what ad was on the screen; and we thought the Mo'ne Davis ad was more engaging than the James Van Der Beek one, but we digress.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
