What were the ratings for the ALCS game 7 last night?


Was it the most watched Baseball game ever like someone suggested it would be? I wonder how good the ratings will be for the superbowl this year? Right now it looks like Philly(They have an easy schedule) and N.E. or the Jets will be in it. I would think that a Philly vs. the Jets game would interest just about everyone. Heck if you don’t like the Jets you could always watch it to cheer against Philly(everyone loves to hate Philly!). Anyway, do the ratings for each professional championship series go up every year just because there are more TV sets or does the match-up affect the ratings more?

According to Zap2it ,


"Game 7 of the American League Championship Series between Boston and the New York Yankees began the night with a 17.3/26 for FOX. ...The baseball game peaked at 9 p.m. with an average of 18.5/26 for FOX....As the Sox rolled to a 10-3 win and the World Series, FOX drew a 16.8/26 in the 10 p.m. hour."

Wonder if the jump from 8pm to 9pm was because of people watching "Lost" and then switching over

The rating published in today's Boston globe give a 19.4 rating overall (30 share) for the telecast nationwide.


Nobody cares about baseball though. ;)


Ratings were 56.6 in Boston with an 77 share from 8:30-12:00am, peaking at 60 with an 87(!) share at 9pm.

Nobody does care unless it is the Sox and Yankees.

Into the bleachers:

Red Sox comeback gives Fox night to remember



By RICK KISSELL, Variety.com
The Boston Red Sox helped Fox rock in primetime Wednesday, with the team's pennant-clinching victory over the hated New York Yankees becoming baseball's most-watched non-World Series game in 13 years.

Long-suffering Red Sox fans now get a chance to root on their team in its first World Series appearance in 18 years. Boston will take on either the Houston Astros or St. Louis Cardinals beginning Saturday night on Fox.

Regardless of which team plays the Sox, the Series is sure to produce nifty Nielsens for Fox, which for a second straight year benefits from the momentum of a pair of League Championship Series extended to seven games.

Wednesday night's 10-3 Boston victory averaged a big 11.8 rating/29 share in adults 18-49 and 31.46 million viewers overall -- up 7% over last year's Game 7 between the same teams.
No baseball game has drawn a larger overall audience since Game 7 of the 2001 World Series (Yankees-Arizona Diamondbacks), and no LCS contest has fared better since Game 7 of the Pittsburgh-Atlanta National League matchup on CBS in 1991.

It's also the fall season's highest-rated telecast, moving ahead of the Sept. 23 season premiere of CBS drama "CSI" (11.4/28 in 18-49, 30.57m), and the best for any Fox program since the finale of "American Idol" last May.

In Boston, the game averaged a monster 56.6/76 (a higher local rating than the New England Patriots' two recent Super Bowl victories), while in New York it posted a 30.7/43.

Despite the Red Sox lop-sided win, the game's ratings somewhat surprisingly peaked nationally in the final half-hour, as the Red Sox capped their amazing comeback in the series before nearly 33 million viewers. Fox Sports estimates that roughly 61.7 million watched at least some of the game from 8:26 p.m. to 12:01 a.m.

Fox dominated the night, beating the combined 18-49 ratings of ABC, CBS and NBC (11.8/29 vs. 11.5/27).

And from Friday's Daily News in Los Angeles:


Fox's Game 7 numbers were staggering. Boston had a 56.6 rating with a 76 share, better than the city did for either of the New England Patriots' Super Bowl wins (52.2/78 in 2004 and 56.1/78 in 2002). New York came in at 30.7 and 43. Even though Los Angeles (19.2/29) only virtually matched the national rating (19.4/30), it was easily the most-watched show of the night in these parts.


That national mark is the best for an LCS game since the Angels-Red Sox Game 7 in 1986. The 31.5 million viewers is the largest for any LCS game since the Dodgers-Mets Game 7 in 1988 and for an ALCS game since the Angels-Brewers Game 5 in 1982.
