St. Louis Cardinals, FS Midwest Score MLB's Best TV Ratings PDF Print E-mail

Cardinals

The Boston Red Sox have owned the title of Major League Baseball's most locally watched team for the last six years. In 2010, however, the St. Louis Cardinals, who failed to make the playoffs this season, had baseball's top local TV ratings scoring a 9.5 local average for its 127 telecasts, according to St. Louis Business Journal. The 9.5 rating translates into around 120,000 households.

The Cardinals' broadcasts on FS Midwest saw a 19 percent increase in ratings from 2009 and topped their previous high of a 9.2 average rating. The team's game casts scored No. 1 in prime time in their market 69 times out of 98 night games. Last year they accomplished that feat 51 times.

FS Midwest also set a mark for their highest-rated event in the network's history during an Aug. 10 Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds game in which the two teams cleared benches.

FoxSports Midwest will carry all non-nationally broadcast games next season

The Minnesota Twins' TV ratings finished in second place among MLB teams with an 8.77 average. Philadelphia, Tampa Bay and Cincinnati also ended the regular season in the top five. The Reds had an enormous jump in viewership since '09, increasing their ratings by 94.5 percent.

Several teams from the West Coast didn't draw viewership quite as well. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Angles finished in the bottom five and the Oakland A's, with a rating of 1.16, had the lowest ratings in the Major Leagues.

FIX-Cablevision Carriage Dispute
This is what Cablevision currently has airing on
FOX5 and MY9

UPDATED WITH SPECIFIC CHANNELS AND MARKETS IMPACTED .... THIS IS BREAKING NEWS…

A carriage dispute between News Corp’s FOX and Cablevision had FOX pull several of its channels off Cablevision late last night, and now it appears that no deal will be in place any time tonight. That means that Cablevision customers in Philadelphia and New York will not see Game1 of the NLCS between the Giants and Philles. The blacked-out Fox channels are FOX 5 (WNYW) in New York and FOX 29 (WTXF) in Philadelphia. My9 (WWOR) is Fox's 2nd New York station (a MyNetworkTV affiliate licensed to Secaucus, NJ), also blacked out, but it doesn't affect the MLB or NFL coverage situation.. NFL games could also in danger of not airing on Sunday.

“It is shameful for News Corp. to use Major League Baseball and NFL games to hold viewers hostage in order to extract tens of millions from Cablevision customers,” said Charles Schueler, Cablevision’s executive vice president of communications. “ We have accepted the bipartisan calls from scores of political leaders to reach a fair agreement through binding arbitration, and demand that News Corp. also agree and immediately return its Fox programming to Cablevision customers.”

"As long as there is a serious effort on the part of Cablevision, we will be at the table," Fox spokesman Scott Grogin said earlier in the day. "We want to settle this as quickly as possible."

2010 ALCS

Rangers fans probably wish the game had never happened, while Yankee fans rejoiced.

FIX-Cablevision Carriage Dispute
This is what Cablevision currently has airing on
FOX5 and MY9

A carriage dispute between News Corp’s FOX and Cablevision had FOX pull several of its channels off Cablevision late last night. The channels blacked out are FOX5 in New York and MY9 in Philadelphia. The dispute has the capacity to have Game 1 of the NLCS – a marquee match-up between Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay –blacked out on those carriers.

"News Corp.'s decision to remove Fox programming from 3 million Cablevision households is a black eye for broadcast television in America," Cablevision spokesman Charles Schueler said to The AP

A statement by FOX on the dispute laid blame on Cablevision.

"In an effort to avoid this very situation, we started this process in May and made numerous reasonable proposals to Cablevision," said Mike Hopkins, president of Fox Networks Affiliate Sales and Marketing. "However, we remain far apart and Cablevision has made it clear that they do not share our view regarding the value of Fox's networks."

The sides are set to resume talks today at noon ET.

Game 1 of the NLCS is set for a first pitch at 7:57pm ET, and airs on FOX nationally.

In terms of how this might impact Major League Baseball, according to sources who wished to speak off-record, should any postseason games not be carried, the league would lose no broadcast revenues.

Rays-Rangers Game 4 Lowest-Ever Rated Postseason Telecast for TBS PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 2
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Tuesday, 12 October 2010 14:00

2010 MLB Postseason on TBSBefore the season ended, I looked at the potential match-ups for the postseason and came to the conclusion that MLB would likely see a ratings decline compared to last year. With the Division Series set, sans the outcome of tonight’s match-up between the Rangers and Rays (first pitch, 8:07 pm ET on TBS), in the books, that is likely to be the case.

But, before then, TBS can point to the ALDS Game 4 between the Rays and Rangers and say that it was the lowest-rated and least-viewed MLB postseason telecast since it began airing the playoffs in '07. According to today’s edition of the SportsBusiness Daily, TBS averaged a 2.3 U.S. rating and 3.678 million viewers for Sunday's LDS telecasts, with the Rays-Rangers game pulling a 1.5 U.S. rating and 2.219 million. MLB had the disadvantage of going up against a slate of NFL games.

According to the SBD, the “net's previous low was for Phillies-Brewers NLDS Game Four in the same day/time slot in '08 (2.220 million viewers). Sunday's TBS MLB figures are also down from a 2.9 U.S. rating and 4.537 million viewers for three telecasts on the comparable day last year.”

Below is a breakdown of Sunday’s game.

Texas RangersThe Texas Rangers today announced that the club has signed Tom Grieve to a three-year contract extension as the club’s television analyst on Fox Sports Southwest and TXA21. The new agreement carries Grieve, who has been on the team’s telecasts since 1995, through the 2013 season.

It was also announced that television play-by-play announcer Josh Lewin will not return for 2011.

“After several discussions over the last few months, the Texas Rangers and Josh Lewin have agreed to end their relationship and move ahead in different directions,” commented team President Nolan Ryan. “As a result, Josh will not be returning as the Rangers television announcer in 2011. We wish Josh the very best for the future.”

“I would like to thank the Rangers for nine wonderful years,” said Lewin. “I respect the team’s leadership and vision and wish them nothing but the best as well.”

Lewin has been on Rangers’ telecasts since 2002. The club will immediately begin its search for a play-by-play broadcaster to work with Grieve on the Fox Sports Southwest and TXA21 telecasts.

MLB on TBSWith the Division Series seeing one sweep (the Yankees over the Twins), and the Rays staving off elimination, the broadcast schedule begins to see some adjustments.

Here's how the broadcast schedule on TBS is for today (Sunday, Oct. 10), and how game times shift depending on whether the Phillies sweep the Reds, or not.

For those wishing to catch the pre-game show, TBS MLB on Deck airs at 12:30 p.m. (ET) featuring Matt Winer (host), Dennis Eckersley, Cal Ripken and David Wells (analysts). The pre-game show will lead into Game 4 between the Tampa Bay Rays @ Texas Rangers at 1 p.m. (ET), followed at 4:30 p.m. (ET) by Game 3 of the Atlanta Braves hosting the San Francisco Giants. The final game of the night will feature the Philadelphia Phillies @ Cincinnati Reds in Game #3 at 8 p.m. (ET). The night will wrap up with post-game studio coverage on Inside MLB with Winer, Eckersley, Ripken and Wells.

TBS’ coverage of the 2010 MLB Postseason continues on Mon., October 11 with two potential scenarios based on the outcome of Sunday’s games (full details below):

  • If the Reds win on Sunday, TBS MLB on Deck will get underway at 4:30 p.m. (ET) before leading into Phillies @ Reds in Game #4 at 5 p.m. (ET), followed by the Braves hosting the Giants in Game #4 at 8:30 p.m. (ET). Inside MLB will recap the night’s action.
  • If the Reds lose on Sunday, TBS MLB on Deck will begin at 7 p.m. (ET) on Monday and will be followed by Giants @ Braves (Game #4) at 7:30 p.m. (ET). Inside MLB will recap the night’s action after the game.
