The St. Louis Post-Dispatch on the TV ratings for the MLB All-Star Game:
The Nielsen Co. says that Fox’s telecast of Tuesday night’s contest from Kansas City was seen in 20.5 percent of homes with a TV in the St. Louis market. That’s up from the 17.8 rating last year and tied with the figure from 2010. The local All-Star rating soared in 2009, when the game was played at Busch Stadium and drew a 37 figure.
All those games were on KTVI (Channel 2). Coming in second this year was KC (18.7), followed by Detroit (16.1).
Best baseball fans in the country. It’s one of the main reasons I like living here. People “get it” when it comes to the game itself.
