Controversial Game 3 of 2013 World Series Sees TV Ratings Up 21% Over Last Year PDF Print E-mail

2013 World Series Logo

At first it seemed that the Boston Red Sox had nailed two St. Louis Cardinals base runners at the plate in the bottom of the ninth and Game 3 of the 2013 World Series was headed to extra innings.  However, umpires ruled that Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks had interfered with Cardinals base runner Allen Craig who was awarded home, giving St. Louis a controversial 5-4 victory and a two games to one lead in the best of seven series.

A closely contested Game 3 posted a 7.4/14 household rating/share with 12.5 million viewers, according to fast national ratings issued today by Nielsen Media Research, up 21% and 19% respectively compared to Game 3 a year ago (6.1/11, 10.5 million), and is the highest-rated, most-watched World Series Game 3 since 2009 (9.1/18, 15.4 mm).  Last night's game also out-rates four of the last five Game 3s dating back to 2008, is projected to power FOX to an easy first place finish in prime time among households and key male and adult demos and is the network's best Saturday performance in prime time since January.

As is typically the case for close postseason games, the rating and audience after 11:00 PM ET was larger than before 11:00 PM ET in total and among younger viewers.  Game 3 averaged a 7.0 household rating and 12.0 million viewers before 11:00 PM, and increased 19% in rating (8.3) and 14% in audience (13.7 million) after 11:00 PM.  Among teens (age 12-17), ratings post-11:00 PM ET increased 18% (1.3 vs. 1.1).

Last night’s game opened with a 5.6/11 with 9.3 million viewers from 8:00-8:30 PM ET, and grew steadily throughout the night peaking with an 8.5/16 with 14.1 million viewers from 11:00-11:30 PM ET.

In addition to its overall success, last night’s game posted huge increases across key male and adult demos: Men 18-34, +27% (3.8 vs. 3.0); Men 18-49, +17% (4.2 vs. 3.6); Adults 18-34, +12% (2.8 vs. 2.5); and Adults 18-49 , +18% (3.3 vs. 2.8).

The World Series on FOX through three games is averaging an 8.1/14 with 13.4 million viewers, +13% over last year’s first three game average (7.2/12, 11.7 million viewers) in households and +15% on average viewership.

Through World Series Game 3, FOX’s nine-game postseason average (5.9/10, 9.5 million viewers) is up +18% in rating and +17% in audience from the 5.0/8, 8.1 million viewers produced by the network’s postseason coverage through World Series Game 3 last year (7 LCS, 3 WS), and ranks as FOX’s best postseason since 2010 (6.3/11, 10.6 million viewers).

Not surprisingly, St. Louis led all markets posting a 37.2, followed by Boston (32.4), with Providence (30.2), Hartford (19.1) and Oklahoma City (13.1) rounding out the top five.  Also posting double digit ratings were Ft. Myers (11.2), Richmond and Tulsa (11.0), Kansas City (10.9) and Memphis (10.3).  Among the nation's five biggest markets, New York posted a 7.6, while Los Angeles recorded a 6.9, Chicago 5.6, Philadelphia 6.4 and Dallas 7.0.

FOX was the No. 1 most social TV network on Saturday, led by World Series Game 3.  According to figures released by Nielsen SocialGuide, Twitter activity for last night’s World Series Game 3 drew over 482,000 tweets (up +171% from 2012 World Series Game 3) from more than 211,000 unique authors (up +120%).

According to Facebook, World Series Game 3 generated 4.8 million interactions from 2.8 million users during the game.  For the first time in three games, Missouri topped Massachusetts in generating buzz, followed by users in California, Illinois, and New York.  Team buzz was evenly split with Cardinals and Red Sox fans each responsible for 50% of the comments, likes, and posts related to the game.

Ortiz Grand Slam

The dramatic comeback by the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALCS was a massive ratings win for FOX Sunday night.

That dramatic comeback that saw David Ortiz hit a grand slam in the eighth inning and Jarrod Saltalamacchia singling in the bottom of the ninth to drive in Jonny Gomes delivered a 5.2/8 national household rating, with 8.3 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, up +44% compared to last year’s National League Championship Series Game 2 on FOX (3.6/6; 5.6 million viewers). Last night’s Game 2 was also up +24% over 2011’s Game 2 of the ALCS on FOX (4.2/8; 6.6 million viewers) for Tigers vs. Rangers. The series is now tied 1-1 as it heads to Detroit for Game 3 on Tuesday.

Through two games, the 2013 ALCS on FOX is averaging a 4.7/8 (7.5 million viewers), up +21% over last year’s 3.9/6 for NLCS on FOX, tying 2010’s LCS average as FOX’s highest-rated through two games since 2009.

Additional Demo Highlights:

  • Last night’s Game 2 out-performed last year’s NLCS Game 2 in key male demographics led by an +86% increase in Men 18-34 (2.6 vs. 1.4) and a +56% increase among Men 18-49 (3.1 vs. 2.0) respectively. Game 2 is up +50% among adults 18-49 (2.4 vs. 1.6).
  • In key demo rating comparisons through two games, the 2013 ALCS on FOX is up +33% among Men 18-34 (2.4 vs. 1.8); up +22% among Men 18-49 (2.8 vs. 2.3); and up +17% among Adults 18-49 (2.1 vs. 1.8).

Through two games, Detroit leads all markets with a 30.5/47 and recorded its best LCS rating ever with last night’s game (34.5/50).  Boston’s two-game average is a 21.2/39, followed by Providence (20.1/33.5); Hartford (16.5/29); Baltimore (16.0/29); San Diego (11.4/26); Indianapolis (8.8/15); Las Vegas (6.5/11) and St. Louis (6.4/11.5).

2013 MLB Postseason logo

With a decisive Game 5 between the Pirates and the Cardinals, with the winner moving on the meet the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, viewers reached for the clicker to watch.

The complete game by Adam Wainwright that led the Cardinals to a 6-1 win over the Pirates in Game 5 of the NLDS on Wednesday led to the most-watched game of the 2013 Postseason.

TBS’ national telecast of Cardinals-Pirates averaged 6.1 million viewers, up 69 percent over comparable Wednesday coverage in 2012 according to Nielsen. For the seventh time in the last nine nights, TBS topped all cable competition in primetime, leading the second place network by 125 percent in the metered market ratings.

Overall, through 15 Division Series telecasts, TBS has averaged 3.7 million viewers, up 9 percent through the same number of games in 2012.

In St. Louis, Wednesday’s game drew a 33.6 rating, the highest mark for an MLB game there since Game 6 of the 2012 NLCS. By the conclusion of the game, 58 percent of all TVs on in St. Louis were tuned to the game. In Pittsburgh, the game drew a 31.1, second-best ever on record in the market behind only last week’s Wild Card game.

This Postseason has been marked by especially strong starting pitching, as well as an unprecedented number of rookie pitchers. Seven rookies have started Postseason games this year (Gerrit Cole, Sonny Gray, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Danny Salazar, Daniel Straily, Julio Teheran and Michael Wacha), already eclipsing the previous record of six set during last year’s entire Postseason. In addition, there have already been 10 instances of a starting pitcher going at least six innings and allowing no more than one run, two shy of the entire 2012 Postseason.

Whether it’s large markets and storied brands (Red Sox, Dodgers), or that the Pirates are in, or that Tigers are trying to get back to the World Series, people are watching MLB’s postseason more than last season.

Friday’s four games, with three airing on TBS and one televised by MLB Network, were up +29% in national rating (1.8 average) over the corresponding four-game slate in 2012.

Overall, through Day 2 of Division Series action on TBS and MLB Network, the entire 2013 MLB Postseason is up +16% in national rating over the corresponding coverage in 2012, according to Nielsen (2.2 average).

MLB Network’s coverage of the Pirates’ 7-1 victory over the Cardinals was the network’s highest rated game of the year (1.0 coverage rating), and drew the third-highest rating in the network’s history.

The four games on Friday were also the top four most talked-about programs on social media across all of TV throughout the day on Friday, accounting for 40% of all tweets about anything on TV all day, according to Social Guide. As the Braves-Dodgers game was nearing its conclusion, more than 1,500 tweets were sent each minute.

2013 MLB Wild Card

With the first playoff game in Pittsburgh since 1992, and the winner-advances format for the Wild Card, fans tuned in to Tuesday’s NL Wild Card game to officially kick off the 2013 MLB postseason.

With the largest crowd, ever, in PNC Park history at 40,487 the game got strong ratings on TV and solid action via social media.

TBS’ telecast of last night’s NL Wild Card Game drew a 3.0 fast national rating and 4.6 million viewers, both +15% increases over last year’s NL Wild Card Game. The game led TBS to win prime time over all other cable competition, with a metered market rating +150% higher than the second place network. In Pittsburgh, the TBS telecast drew a 33.7 local rating, the highest for any MLB game ever on record in the market.

The game also got lots of activity on social media, with 336,169 total tweets sent by 142,463 unique authors, by far the most-discussed program on TV throughout the entire day, according to data from SocialGuide. As the Pirates closed out the 6-2 victory, more than 70% of all tweets about anything on TV were about the game.

AstrosComcast SportsNet Houston, the regional sports network created in partnership with the Houston Astros, Houston Rockets, and NBC Universal/Comcast, filed involuntary bankruptcy on Friday. The Houston Astros, who are the majority stakeholders in the fledgling RSN appeared to be caught off-guard by the action saying that Comcast “improperly filed” the petition “in an attempt to prevent the Astros from terminating the Media Rights Agreement between the Astros and Houston Regional Sports Network.”

The Astros, who are majority stakeholders own 46.384 percent of CSN Houston while the Rockets own 30.923 percent. NBC Universal/Comcast owns 22.693 percent.

The Astros added in their statement that CSN Houston “failed to pay the Astros media rights fees in July, August and September”, adding that they had “invested additional money in order to keep the network viable through our season.”

NBC Universal said in a statement that it had filed “in order to resolve structural issues affecting CSN Houston’s partnership.”

They added, “This action is necessary to preserve CSN Houston’s ability to provide its valuable programming and reaffirms Comcast/NBC Universal’s commitment to serving the region and its fans.”

David Barron of the Houston Chronicle noted that listed as petitioning creditors in the case are National Digital Television Center of Centennial, Colo., which is owed $10,517.50; Comcast Sports Management Services LLC, which is owed $1,251,573.75 for management services; Comcast SportsNet California, which is owed $43,129.02; and Houston SportsNet Finance, based in Philadelphia, which has a $100 million loan to the partnership plus accrued and unpaid interest, fees, and other amounts.

The Astros added in their statement that, “Despite not receiving our media rights fees, our objective has not changed.  We will continue to work toward obtaining full carriage so that all of our fans are able to watch the Astros games while making sure that the Astros are able to compete for championships.”

CSN Houston will remain on the air while the bankruptcy proceeds. The network is only seen on about 40 percent of households in the Houston region and has struggled to gain carriage with any carriers outside of Comcast. Mayor Annise Parker tried to broker a break in the stalemate between CSN Houston and the major carriers by setting up meetings with officials of DirecTV, Time Warner and Suddenlink, but those meetings were fruitless.

MLB Experiments with Placing TV Ad Graphics on the Field PDF Print E-mail

Ads on MLB field

Rogers SportsNet

We’ve seen graphics showing where the first down line is, and the red zone in football. We’ve seen graphics on panels behind home plate. But, a Toronto Blue Jays game via SportsNet shows that it could move into baseball in a new way, placing graphics on the field in foul territory, and on the batter’s eye in center field.

As this graphic from Business Insider that first reported the story shows the Orange Julius logo is near the 3rd base coach’s box. At the link you’ll see the logo on the batter’s eye, as well as the Honda logo in foul territory. Like the panels behind home plate, fans at the game would never see the graphics overlay, only those watching on television. In doing so, advertisers would see more saturation than just from the center field camera where the panels behind home plate are located.

As to whether this new twist on advertisement will burst across MLB broadcasts, according to league officials, the insertion of virtual ads on the field is a test with the league evaluating it after the season. No word as to whether we’ll see this occurring only with Blue Jay games, or with other regional or national sports networks throughout the 2013 season.
