Ken RosenthalIt’s not often that a story that isn’t a story becomes one, yet here we are.

Glancing at The Biz of Baseball’s logs today sees a flurry of Google and Yahoo searches such as this…

Rosenthal+ESPN

Ken Rosenthal to ESPN

Rosenthal to leave Fox 

Ken Rosenthal, for the uninitiated, is a senior baseball writer and television analyst for FoxSports.

(Read The Biz of Baseball interview with Ken Rosenthal)

Could he be headed to the Worldwide Leader? Is there more shifting going on between media outlets?

To those that are searching, I asked him, “Is something up?”

“Nothing whatsoever,” Rosenthal said. “I'm strictly Fox and will be for the foreseeable future!”

Let any rumors be laid to rest.

Barry BondsRon Shelton, who has screenplay credits for Bad Boys II, The Great White Hype, and who has directed Tin Cup, and Cobb to name but a few, will be directing a film for HBO on Barry Bonds. As reported by Variety:

HBO Films has acquired rights to "Game of Shadows: Barry Bonds, BALCO and the Steroids Scandal That Rocked Professional Sports," a book by Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams, the San Francisco Chronicle reporters who broke numerous stories about the nutrition company accused of distributing illegal steroids to athletes including Bonds, Oakland A's and New York Yankees first baseman Jason Giambi and Olympic gold medal sprinter Marion Jones.

Shelton will write the script with his “Tin Cup” writing partner John Norville as soon as the writers strike ends. The film will be exec produced by Ross Greenburg, the HBO Sports president who exec produced Roger Maris biopic “61*,” and Michael Greenburg (“Stargate SG-1”), who’s now exec producer of Score Prods.

Bonds was recently indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice charges for telling the 2003 BALCO grand jury that he did not knowingly use anabolic steroids. The indictment (read the full searchable PDF here) uses 19 excerpts of his testimony in 2003 as the basis for the indictment.

Joe GirardiWith Joe Girardi now in the fold with the New York Yankees, the newest manager of the Bronx Bombers will be doing a weekly radio show on WFAN. Also, Jon Heyman will leave ESPN 1050 and head over to WFAN, as well. As reported by Neil Best of Newsday:

Friday, the station revealed it had hired Jon Heyman away from ESPN 1050, for whom he had spent the past five years offering insights and information.

Yesterday, it added Yankees manager Joe Girardi for the weekly in-season guest spot his predecessor filled for 12 seasons, ending speculation that he might land at 1050 with former YES partner Michael Kay.

Recall in other media news related to the Yankees, Tom Verducci was fired from YES for being critical of the Yankees and Joe Torre’s departure.

Seattle MarinersFSN Northwest and the Seattle Mariners today announced a long-term rights agreement extension that solidifies FSN’s position as the Mariners exclusive television partner. A significant new element of the partnership will begin in 2008, when FSN will televise all available Mariners games (except games restricted by MLB national TV agreements), which will result in the network delivering exclusively a minimum of 150 game telecasts. Another important aspect of the agreement calls for FSN to produce significantly more Mariners games in high definition on FSN HD.

Mariners President Chuck Armstrong said, “FSN has been an excellent partner of the Mariners and sports fans of the Northwest since 1994. For several years, fans have asked that all of our games be televised, and this new package accomplishes that. We believe FSN’s regional coverage of Mariners Baseball has been an important connection to the community.”

(Read The Biz of Baseball interview with Chuck Armstrong)

Fans will benefit from additional new elements of the partnership, including:

Significantly More Mariners Games in High Definition (HDTV)

Beginning in 2008, the number of Mariners games produced in high definition on FSN HD will drastically increase, bringing the number of events annually on FSN HD to over 200.

FSN to Produce Mariners Spanish Audio for All Home Games

Ensuring Spanish-speaking fans in the region will be able to follow the Mariners, FSN has agreed to produce and distribute a Spanish audio feed of all home games. FSN will also make the Spanish language feed available to all of the network’s distribution partners on the Secondary Audio Programming (SAP) channel, and will work with the Mariners to grow a Spanish radio network.

“The extension of our partnership with the Mariners reaffirms FSN Northwest as the region’s leader in local sports and the primary destination for fans to turn to and follow their hometown teams,” said Senior Vice President and General Manager Mark Shuken. “We have solidified the strength of this network for years to come with the desired quantity of games, quality of partners and exclusive opportunities for programming. The Mariners have worked very hard to build a loyal following and we’re proud to be in the position to showcase this great organization across the region.”

The Mariners on FSN have traditionally garnered some of the highest ratings in all of baseball. In 2007, from April through September, Mariners telecasts on FSN were the highest–rated primetime programming in the Seattle DMA, beating all broadcast and cable competition, averaging a 9.0. Overall, FSN’s Mariners telecasts finished with an 8.2 rating in 2007, nearly a 40% increase from the 2006 season. For eight consecutive seasons, from 1996-2003, the Mariners led all MLB teams in television ratings. The Mariners also continue to be a strong product for FSN Northwest in Portland, averaging a 2.3 rating over the past three seasons.

Viewers will continue to receive the most extensive coverage of any MLB team, including:

Mariners Live Before and After Every Game.

Mariners Live gives fans 30 minutes of the latest insights and analysis on the Mariners and all of baseball leading in to the game, then at least an additional 30 minutes of fast-paced action with highlights and reaction from both clubhouses after the game.

Mariners All Access

FSN gets you behind the scenes with exclusive access you can't get anywhere else to learn more about every facet of the Mariners organization. For all of those moments that happen off the field, FSN presents Mariners All Access.

Mariners Nightly Spring Training Show

Nothing captures the excitement of baseball’s return like Spring Training, and FSN will bring that atmosphere into the homes of Mariners fans in the Northwest every night throughout the month of March with Mariners Nightly. FSN will provide 30 minutes of complete coverage every night from the Peoria Sports Complex, detailing the latest with the Mariners roster, providing tips for fans making the trip to Arizona and giving viewers the first look at the new and returning players.

Distribution to all five states in the Northwest region

Extending the Mariners coverage to viewers across the Northwest, FSN carries the telecasts to all of Washington, Oregon, and parts of Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and Canada. In all, Mariners telecasts will reach over 3.4 million homes.

Financial terms were not released.

The reasons show that, yet again, a large market, storied franchise, and star power draws in fans nationally. No, Tribes fans, we’re not talking the Cleveland Indians, we are of course talking about the Boston Red Sox.

As we head into today’s ALCS Game 6 (8pm ET on FOX. Schilling v. Carmona), here are the ratings for this year’s ALCS (Games One-Four. Game 5 ratings not yet available):

Game One (Fri., Oct. 12): 5.7 national household rating and 8.8 million viewers. Represents a 6% and 17% advances over Fox’s lone Saturday 2006 primetime LCS telecast—the third NLCS game between the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets, which produced a 4.9 mark and 7.5 million viewers. Cleveland's 13-6 win was the network’s best Saturday LCS primetime contest since 2004, according to Fox officials. The rating, though, was off 16% from 6.8 average for the second game of last year’s ALCS, which aired on a Wednesday night, when TV usage is 11% higher than Saturdays, according to the network.

Game Two (Sat., Oct. 13): 4.8 household rating and 7.4 million viewers, with the primetime portion (8 p.m. to 10-47 p.m. (ET), notching a 5.0 mark and 7.8 million watchers. That gave Fox its highest-rated, most-watched Friday night since the fifth game of last year’s World Series, between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers, which pulled a 9.1 rating and 14.1 million viewers, for the Redbirds’ clinching contest. (Mediaweek)

Game Three (Mon., Oct. 15): 6.6/11 fast national Nielsen rating (9.9 million viewers), up 78% and 98%, respectively, over the 3.7/9 and 5.0 million viewers for last year’s A’s-Tigers Game Three, which was played on a Friday afternoon. There was no MLB playoff game in the comparable Monday window last year. (Sports Business Daily)

Game Four (Tues., Oct. 16): 12.3 million viewers, and recorded an 8.2 household rating, according to Nielsen Media Research data.

That represents 60 percent more viewers and a 58 percent higher household rating than last year’s ALCS Game 4 on Fox between the Oakland A’s and the Detroit Tigers, which was played on a Saturday afternoon. The game and pre-game show also scored a 3.8 rating in the 18-49 demo, highest for a prime time show in the 8-11 p.m. time period.

Overall: In total, the ALCS on Fox is averaging 9.5 million viewers and a 6.3 household rating, up 21 percent and 17 percent, respectively, over the comparable number of games in the A’s-Tigers series last year. (Mediaweek)

NLCSAs we’ve been reporting, based on the ratings for Games One through Three of the NLCS, TBS was going to see the lowest rated LCS in television history.

Now, with Game Four’s rating numbers in the mix, that projection is now fact.

The national average for the NLCS comes in at 2.8% of metered households.

And, to add to the national apathy, the games did not rate high on the local level. As Michael Hiestand of USA Today reports:

Worse yet, even the hometown fans weren't all that interested. TBS' NLCS games averaged 26.4% of TV households in Denver and 13.6% in Phoenix. That's down from last year's New York Mets-St. Louis Cardinals NLCS, which drew 31.3% in St. Louis and 15.8% in New York, which has more than twice as many households as Phoenix and Denver combined.

And last year's NLCS had more appeal in big cities. The markets in which it got its highest ratings (after St. Louis and New York) were No. 2 Los Angeles, No. 4 Chicago and No. 5 Philadelphia. TBS' top cities, after Denver and Phoenix: No. 47 Memphis, No. 27 San Diego and No. 43 Las Vegas.

David Levy, president of Turner Sports, which has a seven-year MLB deal, agrees game times weren't the problem — "it had nothing to do with times" — and cites one pivotal factor: "It was the teams."

Back to the national average rating of 2.8% what was comparable? As reported further:

In college football, ESPN's most recent coverage of the Emerald Bowl drew 3.7%, its Chick-Fil-A Bowl 4%. In golf, CBS' final-round telecast of the Nissan Open, Wachovia Championship and Bridgestone Invitational each drew 3.4%. And baseball this year got better ratings with ESPN's Home Run Derby (4.3%) and ABC's Little League World Series final (3.3%).

Tim Lemke of the Washington Times weighs in on the ratings as well today (Ratings Plunge for NLCS):

"The moving of the start times was an educated gamble to try and cater to the all-West matchup," said Maury Brown, [founder and president] of the Web site bizofbaseball.com and a contributor to Baseball Prospectus. "By shifting the times, televisions executives and MLB know that these two teams have had little coverage on the East Coast and therefore are looking to capture as much viewers as possible where they have had the most coverage — the West."

Brown, who resides in Portland, Ore., suggested the teams involved in the series played a bigger role in the ratings dip.

"The difficulty is that MLB — and professional sports as a whole — is a star-driven entertainment industry," he said. "The Diamondbacks and Rockies are not laced with stars, and therefore, even in the West, interest has been lukewarm at best, with Denver and Phoenix the possible exceptions."

So much for my "possible exceptions" comments as I had not seen the ratings at the time. When the numbers were published today, I was more than a bit surprised. 

TBS response to the ratings was that although the ratings for this NLCS was abysmal, the ratings will average out over the life of the agreement due to other markets being in the mix. Welcome to The Ratings Game.
