Divison Series on TBSBuoyed by compelling match-ups, competitive games, and large markets being represented, Day Two of the MLB Division Series on TBS saw overnight ratings up 21 percent in metered-markets from last year’s games. Last year’s games were played one week earlier due to the World Baseball Classic being played this year before the regular season was started.

As noted, these are the overnight metered-market ratings. Final ratings will be published shortly on The Biz of Baseball as soon as they are released.

Despite Ratings Dip, NESN Highest Rated Regional Sports Network in MLB for 6th Consecutive Season PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maury Brown   
Friday, 09 October 2009 14:15

Red SoxDespite a 7 percent decline in ratings year over year, New England Sports Network (NESN) was the highest rated regional sports network in baseball for the 6th consecutive season earning a 9.4 average household rating (226,000 homes) for Red Sox broadcasts in the Boston DMA. NESN still finished the season 18 percent better than the second highest rated regional network (Fox Sports Net Midwest in St. Louis ).

“Once again Red Sox fans have shown themselves to be best fans in the country,” said Sean McGrail , NESN President and CEO.  “Despite increased competition in the marketplace that included Bruins and Celtics playoff runs during the first two months of the Red Sox season, we were still able to deliver incredible value to our advertisers and prove once again that no other fan base in the country can match our fans for their loyalty and passion.”

Pre and Post-Game Audiences Grow in 2009

NESN’s pre-game show Olympia Sports presents The Boston Globe Red Sox GameDay LIVE enjoyed a 21 percent increase over last season with a 1.7 HH average (40,000 homes). NESN’s one-hour of post-game coverage after every game, which consists of two half-hour programs WB Mason Extra Innings and Granite City Red Sox Final, also drew a larger audience with a 3.2 combined HH rating, which equals an average of over 78,000 homes (up 2 percent).

“We are very proud of the gains we’ve made with our Red Sox studio programming,” said Joel Feld , NESN executive vice president of programming and executive producer. “We put significant effort into improving our pre and post-game shows during the off-season. Red Sox Game Day LIVE helped feed a larger audience into our games, and more fans stayed with us after the final out to watch Tom Caron and our talented team of analysts break down the action.”

NESN is owned by New England Sports Ventures, which owns the Boston Red Sox.

MLB on TBSTBS took the field for its 2009 MLB Postseason coverage with the most-watched day one of the LDS since 2005, averaging 4,933,000 total viewers for tripleheader coverage. The network also saw double-digit growth compared to last year, averaging a 3.3 U.S. household rating for all three games, which was a 14% ratings increase over day one of 2008. In addition, total average viewers increased 16% (4,933,000 vs. 4,256,000) and households were up 14% (3,792,000 vs. 3,316,000) versus last year. TBS also recorded its most-watched total day in 2009 to date.

Overall, day one of the League Division Series saw significant growth in all key demos, including:

Jittery Picture for TBS MLB Broadcasts Blamed on the Sun PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 8
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Thursday, 08 October 2009 13:42

Image of the SunWhether it was on Twitter, Facebook, blogs, or in our case, via email, fans watching the 2009 Division Series play on TBS were asking, “What’s with the jittery and pixilated picture I keep getting?” Well, it seems it’s less an issue with TBS, and more of a, well... celestial problem. As reported by Philadelphia Daily News:

Turner Broadcasting said the position of the sun caused brief disruptions in the satellite signal during the Phillies-Rockies game on TBS, leading to a blacked-out screen or a pixelated image for some viewers.

According to Sal Petruzzi, Turner Broadcasting's senior vice president for public relations, the issue happens for a few days in the fall and spring.  And adding to the viewing experience, “The period of potential disruption is from approximately 4:10 to 5:10 p.m. Petruzzi said any difficulties are expected to last only 2 to 5 minutes.”

What does that mean? Well, according to TBS, it could happen throughout the playoffs during the time period.

According to more than one person emailing us, TBS had this issue last year during the playoffs, as well. You can't beat mother nature.

A "Model of Consistency"?

TBS has seen poor quality announcing from the likes of Chip Caray and Ron Darling over the course of yesterday's AL Central tiebreaker game (Caray calling “Base Hit!” on a crucial flyball out in the 10th) and this evening's ALDS Game 1 between the Twins and the Yankees (Caray, once again, called a base hit when it was a flyball out), but production hasn't been impervious to mistakes on TBS's coverage, as this graphic clearly shows:

With the start of the Divisional Series, Majestic Athletic will be airing its first network television commercial. Majestic’s spot is one of few product ads that feature actual MLB on-field footage.

“MLB has been a tremendous partner in helping us bring together video and voice-over that captures the excitement of being part of the game.   As well, the MLB Players Association also helped us develop a spot that enabled us to showcase jerseys of breakthrough players,” said Jim Pisani, President of VF Licensed Sports Group.

The ad promotes Majestic’s new replica jerseys launched early this year.  The new replica offers a significant improvement by incorporating official fonts for player names and numbers.

“Look around the ballpark and you see more jerseys than ever.  Fans wear Majestic replicas because they are truly part of the team, the new jersey helps fans look the part,” said Michael Johnson, Majestic Marketing Director.

“The postseason is a great time for MLB apparel.  Between the new replicas, new tech fleece trainers, World Series merchandise and official team apparel, Majestic has created products for every consumer taste,” commented Howard Smith, MLB Senior Vice President of Licensing.

Majestic’s TV spot will run throughout TBS coverage of the Division Series and on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight postseason coverage.
