MLB All-Star Game Draws Poor Ratings

Jul 13, 2005  •  Post A Comment

Another lopsided American League victory left Fox with the lowest-rated MLB All-Star Game ever Tuesday night.

The game drew an 8.1 household rating and a 14 share, down from 8.8/15 in 2004. But Fox noted that the game was still the highest-rated program in prime time and its 4.3 rating among adults 18-49 — down from 5.0 last year — doubles the summer average of the Big 4 networks.

Baseball’s midseason classic remains the highest rated all-star event in sports. The Fox telecast drew the biggest audience for the network since the “American Idol” finale May 25.
