See ya, L.A. Enjoy rollerblading on Venice Beach while the rest of us watch the World Series.

It's only fair, anyway, because New York and Philly actually care.

Not only did the New York market crush Los Angeles in the ratings - 19.8 percent of area homes compared to 10.8 - but L.A. barely beat out Philadelphia, 10.8 to 10.6, and Philly didn't even have a team in the game.
