The ratings for Game 1 this year were way up from Game 1 of last year. Of course you have to take into consideration that Game 1 this year was on Wednesday night and last year it was on Saturday.
Now would you be watching this movie if the Series was 2-1 and the games had all been close? I can fully understand people not wanting to watch the Series when one team has a 3-0 lead and has dominated throughout.
