MLB All Star Game Was Not A Huge Hit

This morning we noted what a big hit the 2010 World Cup was in the US… Sadly, we can’t say the same for the 2010 MLB All Star game.

Tuesday night’s Major League Baseball All-Star game drew only a 7.5 rating for Fox, the lowest number ever for the midseason classic. As reported by the Associated Press, the previous low was an 8.1 rating in 2005. Last night’s 7.5 rating represents a 16% drop from last year’s rating of 8.9. ESPN’s much-maligned “The Decision” drew a 9.9 rating last week.

To put it in context, even the NFL Pro Bowl had better ratings and it was on cable.
