Tuesday night’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game, in which the American League pulled out a 2-1 win over the National League in 10 innings, scored a bit of a ratings turnaround. The 88th installment of the game, which aired on Fox, experienced year-to-year growth in the metereed-market ratings for the first time in five years.
Fox announced that the game delivered a 6.5 overnight rating and 11 share, based on Nielsen Media Research data. Tuesday’s game was up 2% over last year’s 6.4/11. Adding in the coverage on Fox Deportes, the game delivered a 6.6/11.
“Last night’s contest is projected to be Fox’s best night in prime time since Super Bowl LI and its best Tuesday night since Game 6 of the World Series in November of 2016,” Fox announced.
