MLB All-Star Game on Fox Hits a Ratings Home Run Tuesday

·3-min read

Fox’s coverage of Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game knocked it out of the park Tuesday night, scoring a 1.5 rating in the key 18-49 demographic — the highest across all of primetime. The mid-season game was also the most-watched offering across broadcast during primetime last night with 7.5 million total viewers.

Still, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” was a close second with 6.1 million total viewers as the reality competition series continues to be one of broadcast’s most-reliable attention grabbers. Never underestimate Simon Cowell.

Despite the stiff competition, Fox still secured the most total average viewers with 7.5 million overall. Not too shabby.
