With Yankees in the Mix, TBS Sees Ratings Increase for LCS Coverage Over 2011 PDF Print E-mail

LCS

TBS reports today that the American League Championship Series (ALCS), between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees is up considerably over their postseason coverage from last season, but then, that should be expected. This year, TBS saw the Yankees, a ratings powerhouse nationally, along with the Tigers. The ALCS averaged 5,924,000 total viewers, an increase of 28 percent over last year’s average of 4,612,000 total viewers for the network’s coverage of the National League Championship Series (NLCS), but that included the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers.  While strong baseball markets, and the Cardinals have exceptionally strong history, there was bound to be a bump in this year’s ALCS coverage. Still, a 28 percent increase is nothing to sneeze at. The network’s ALCS coverage averaged a 3.8 U.S. household rating, up 31 percent over an average 2.9 U.S. household rating for the NLCS last year.  

Additional ALCS highlights provided by TBS add some context in their favor in regards to when the games were played:

  • In 2012, TBS aired two ALCS games in primetime (Saturday’s Game 1 and Tuesday’s Game 3) and two afternoon telecasts (Sunday’s Game 2 and Thursday’s Game 4).
  • In primetime, the Yankees/Tigers games averaged a 4.1 U.S. household rating and 6.6 million total viewers.
  • The two afternoon telecasts averaged a 3.3 U.S. household rating and 5.2 million total viewers.
    In 2011, TBS aired five NLCS games in primetime and one contest during the day.

Yesterday afternoon’s ALCS Game 4 (4-7:48 p.m. ET) averaged a 3.5 U.S. household rating and 5,251,000 total viewers. Locally, the ALCS Game 4 telecast registered a 30.6 metered market rating in Detroit – the highest local rating for any market during the 2012 MLB Postseason on TBS – and an 8.7 metered market rating in New York.

TBS Pulls a 3.7 Overnight Rating For MLB's First-Ever Wild Card Games PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 36

Written by Maury Brown

2012 MLB Postseason Logo

Whether the ratings were good or bad, these numbers are historic. After all, it’s the first time that MLB has had the Wild Card play-in games where the winner moves on the LDS and the loser starts booking tee-times. The games, which saw the Cardinals beat the Braves 6-3 and the Orioles win over the Rangers 5-1 was dripping with compelling stories. Both road teams won, it was Chipper Jones’ last game of his career, the Orioles were back in the playoffs after a drought of 14 years, and along the way there was the “Infield Fly Rule” debacle, and a host of errors by the Braves.

So how did it rank on television? While the NFL must surely be laughing, TBS’s exclusive live doubleheader coverage of Major League Baseball’s first-ever Wild Card averaged a 3.7 overnight rating, based on Nielsen overnight ratings. The network’s telecasts, marking the start of the 2012 MLB Postseason, were up 12 percent compared with an averaged 3.3 overnight rating for the entire Division Series last year. When compared to last year’s opening day of the MLB Postseason (Texas vs. Tampa Bay, ALDS Game 1 – 2.3 overnight rating), the Wild Card games are up 61 percent.

The question is, will it all continue? We’ll find out as MLB goes head-to-head with NCAA Football on Saturday and the NFL on Sunday.

TBS will air up to 18 of the potential Division Series games, while MLB Network will air a Division Series game on Sunday, October 7th and Wednesday, October

For the first time in its four-year history, MLB Network will exclusively televise a Postseason game as Matt Vasgersian and Jim Kaat call Game Two of the American League Division Series featuring the Oakland Athletics at Detroit Tigers this Sunday, October 7 at 12:00 p.m. ET, live from Comerica Park.

  • The game marks Kaat’s return to an MLB Postseason telecast for the first time in 17 years and Vasgersian’s first-ever MLB Postseason call after being the play-by-play voice for the Milwaukee Brewers and San Diego Padres for eleven seasons before joining MLB Network in 2009.
  • Bob Costas will join Kaat in the broadcast booth to call MLB Network’s second exclusive LDS game telecast on Wednesday, October 10.
    • Wednesday’s game will mark Costas’s first MLB Postseason game call since the 2000 ALCS.
  • Sam Ryan will serve as reporter for both LDS game telecasts on MLB Network.
  • Both game telecasts will be available across the country exclusively on MLB Network, including Detroit and Oakland’s home television territories.
  • MLB Network will air complete coverage of the 2012 Postseason, including previews, highlights, analysis, interviews and press conferences across all of its studio programming. MLB Tonight will air live before and after every Postseason game, with reporters on-site at each ballpark during the Division Series and Championship Series, and MLB Tonight and Intentional Talk on the road during the World Series.
  • 2008 World Series champion Jimmy Rollins and two-time American League champion Omar Vizquel will serve as in-studio guest analysts on MLB Tonight during the League Division Series.
