This news is fueling the rate of speed at which FS1 becomes reality.
FOX averaged a 1.7 rating and 2.5 million viewers for 24 regular season MLB telecast windows during the 2012 season, Sports Business Daily reported Tuesday, down 6% in ratings and 7% in viewership from a 1.8 and 2.7 million viewers in each of the past three seasons.
The 1.7 rating is the lowest ever for the Major League Baseball “Game of the Week” on broadcast television. Baseball on FOX has now either set or tied a regular season record-low in each of the past five seasons.
In addition, ratings for baseball on FOX have either declined or remained flat in ten consecutive seasons.
In a table listing average regular season sporting events on OTA TV, MLB on FOX is comparable to Notre Dame on NBC in ratings and viewership, higher than CBS college hoops, and much higher than NHL on NBC.
