Quick Notes: 2022 MLB All-Star Game in LA hits its lowest ratings.
The All-Star Game and MLB Draft have all been completed, and now its' time to kick off the second 2022 season. However, one minor piece of business to take care of before we can officially start to focus on the remainder of the 2022 season is the viewership of the 2022 MLB All-Star Game in LA.
According to Sports Media Watch, the MLB All-Star Game remains the most-watched of its kind but set new record-lows in ratings and viewership. "Tuesday’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game averaged a 4.2 rating and 7.51 million viewers on FOX, down 7% in ratings and 10% in viewership from last year (4.5, 8.32M) and the lowest rated and least-watched edition of the game. The previous rating low was set last year, and the previous viewership low was 8.14 million in 2019."
"The All-Star Game was a strong draw. It delivered television’s largest audience since the end of the NBA Finals more than a month ago, the largest audience on any Fox property since the Daytona 500 in February (8.87M) and the largest primetime audience on a Fox platform since the NFC Championship Game in January (50.23M). It was also the top Fox program in adults 25-54 since the 500 and the top Fox program in 18-34 and 18-49 since the NFC Championship."
