Tigers rank 4th among MLB clubs in TV ratings

According to Sports Business Journal, FS Detroit saw a 10.1% increase in its ratings for Tigers telecasts up to 6.89, fourth-highest among regoinal sports networks for Major League clubs behind the Red Sox on NESN (9.46), Cardinals on FS Midwest (7.97) and Phillies on Comcast Sports Net (7.13). The Twins on FS North (6.25) rounded out the top five, even though they had a big drop.

FS Detroit reported record ratings for at least two Tigers games down the stretch of this year’s playoff race.


Wonder if we lost those two games………..sorry, couldn’t help myself.

I stand by my comments from a couple weeks ago: Whenever this team went on ESPN this year, they didn’t play well. Total coincidence, not an excuse, but just an odd trend. So maybe more viewers isn’t always good for this team. ESPN’s ratings for their games were down this year, by the way.
