China

Major League Baseball International (MLBI) has entered into new agreements with three additional broadcast partners in China, bringing total regional coverage of the 2009 World Series to five networks reaching more than 250 million potential viewers across Beijing, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai and Shenzhen. New deals with Shenzhen TV and Jiangsu TV will begin with the 2009 World Series and include the 2010 MLB All-Star Game, 2010 World Series and episodes of “This Week in Baseball” (TWIB); a new agreement with Beijing TV will bring the 2009 Fall Classic to fans in the nation’s capital. MLBI has existing relationships with Shanghai Media Group (SMG) and Guangdong TV. Since 2007, SMG has broadcast the World Series, MLB All-Star Game and a China-specific edition of “This Week in Baseball.” Guangdong TV, one of the largest and most influential sports stations in southern China, broadcasts TWIB, regular season games and the World Series and will be on hand to call the action live for the 2009 Fall Classic.

MLBI also has agreements with 50 television and radio partners to broadcast the American League Championship Series (ALCS) and World Series in 15 languages to 233 countries and territories around the world. MLBI, which will utilize its own production team and facilities for the postseason telecasts, available in both standard and high definition, also will broadcast the games to nearly one million United States Armed Forces personnel stationed around the world and aboard U.S. Naval ships-at-sea via the Armed Forces Network.

“The tremendous passion for baseball all across the globe is demonstrated by the interest in Major League Baseball games, especially the World Series,” said Paul Archey, Senior Vice President, International Business Operations, Major League Baseball. “MLB is committed to baseball’s continued development and exposure, and we are extremely excited about our extended reach in China, as well as our partnerships with broadcasters around the world.”

Along with MLB International’s broadcast of the World Series, there will be six foreign broadcasters on hand for live commentary, including television broadcasters from Canada, China, the Dominican Republic, Japan, Mexico and Panama. FOX Sports en Español and ESPN International will also call the action live from both sites.

Veteran broadcasters Dave O’Brien and Cy Young award winner, three-time All-Star and National League Rookie of the Year Rick Sutcliffe will call the action for this year’s ALCS and World Series for MLB International. Sutcliffe has worked as a broadcaster for MLB International’s postseason telecasts since 2004, and serves as an ESPN Major League Baseball Analyst, appearing on Wednesday night telecasts since 2002 and for ESPN Radio during the Division Series this year. O’Brien, who will broadcast his sixth postseason for MLB International, joined ESPN in 2002 as a play-by-play commentator where he currently works on MLB Wednesday night telecasts. O’Brien is also the radio play-by-play voice for the Boston Red Sox.

Tuesday, 13 October 2009 16:32

MLB on TBSEven with the fact that 3 of the 4 series were sweeps, and none went the full 5 games, TBS’s exclusive coverage of the MLB League Division Series (LDS) led the network to its most-viewed week in the 33-year history of the network.  For the 2009 LDS, TBS garnered double-digit increases in ratings, total viewers and households.  Over the course of 13 LDS games, TBS averaged a 3.1 US household rating, up 11%, and an 11% increase in total viewers (4,769,000 vs. 4,282,000) when compared to the 2008 LDS.  In addition, the 2009 LDS has averaged 3,575,000 households, an increase of 11%.

Last week, TBS averaged 5.4 million viewers, 4.0 million households, 1.1 million adults 18-34, 2.5 million adults 18-49 and 2.5 million adults 25-54 in primetime.  In addition, TBS was ad-supported cable’s #1 network for the week in primetime and on a total day basis among households, viewers and key demographics.
For TBS’s six days of MLB Postseason coverage, the network saw strong growth in all key demos when compared to 2008, including:
A18-34: +11%; 956,000 this year vs. 859,000 in 2008
A18-49:  +7%;   2,057,000 vs. 1,925,000
A25-54:  +5%;  2,141,000 vs. 2,030,000
M18-34:  +11%; 642,000  vs. 579,000
M18-49:  +7%;  1,410,000 vs. 1,321,000
M25-54:  +4%;  1,472,000 vs. 1,413,000

In addition, TBS had several other notable deliveries for the week:

  • Among total viewers, TBS’s average primetime delivery marked an extraordinary 232% improvement over its prior-week average (1.6 million).
  • In total day, TBS delivered 2.0 million viewers; 1.5 million households; 483,000 adults 18-34; 962,000 adults 18-49; and 944,000 adults 25-54.  The network beat its previous best week ever (Oct. 1-7, 2007) in all five total day categories.
  • Including the MLB Tiebreaker on TBS, the network’s Major League Baseball coverage out-delivered cable primetime and total day on five of the seven days last week.
  • The American League Division Series Game #3 between the Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees was TBS’s most-watched program since the 2008 American League Championship Series Game #7 between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays (Oct. 19, 2008).  The Twins/Yankees game was also the most-watched LDS game since Oct. 8, 2007 (Game 4 of the Indians-Yankees LDS series).

Each LDS had strong ratings and household deliveries:

  • The Minnesota Twins/New York Yankees series earned a 4.2 U.S. household rating and 6,616,000 total viewers.
  • The Twins/Yankees series averaged a 21.2 rating in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market and a 14.3 rating in the New York market.

Monday, 12 October 2009 13:27

MLBAccording to a report by John Ourand of the SportsBusiness Journal, the lack of pennant races, ratings for MLB’s regular season ended down for national broadcasters FOX and ESPN.

FOX saw its Saturday afternoon game ratings drop 10 percent to a 1.8 rating/2.74 million viewers. According to the SBJ, “Fox ended its regular season Oct. 2 with a 1.2/1.7 million average for a Saturday afternoon schedule that had just one game with postseason implications. That’s 48 percent off 2008’s numbers, when the last weekend of the regular season featured three games that had playoff implications for Fox, drawing a 2.3 rating.”

ESPN saw its Sunday Night Baseball ratings dip 6 percent, to a 1.6 U.S. household rating, or 2.46 million viewers. When including all of ESPN’s 66 games that aired on Mondays and Weds., as well, ratings dropped 8 percent over 66 games, to a 1.1/1.6 million viewers.

Of the national broadcasters TBS was the one lone bright spot, seeing ratings climb under a percentage point, a “0.6 U.S. household rating from a 0.5. Its viewer numbers jumped 27 percent, from 730,000 to 930,000.”

At the regional level, half the clubs saw ratings increases with biggest gainers being the Nationals (up 67 percent), Rangers (up 58 percent), Giants (up 39 percent), Braves (up 35 percent), and Rockies (up 26 percent).

Decliners were the A’s (down 53 percent, this season on CSN California), Indians (down 27 percent), Reds (down 23 percent), and Brewers (down 17 percent).
