MLB All-Star Game Ratings Set a Record Low For 3rd Year in a Row

Baseball’s World Series ratings have struggled in recent years, but those problems are nothing like those of the All-Star game, according to Sports Media Watch:

The 2012 MLB All-Star Game drew a 6.8 final rating and 10.9 million viewers on FOX Tuesday night, down a tick in ratings and 1% in viewership from last year (6.9, 10.970M), and down 9% and 10%, respectively, from 2010 (7.5, 12.118M).

Though down only slightly from last year, this year’s All-Star Game ranks as the lowest rated and least-viewed ever. This is the third straight year the game has hit a record-low.

Bug Selig, here’s an idea – employ instant replay in the All-Star game next year! People will love it! [via Sports Media Watch]
