The 2012 MLB All-Star Game delivered solid numbers for FOX on Tuesday night, claiming the primetime win both overall and in the key demographic, even though the AL-NL showdown ceased to be competitive by the end of the first inning.
[It remains to be seen how the All-Star Game numbers will shake out compared to last year, but the game was basically flat from last year in the FOX's two hours of counting primetime.]
Among adults 18-49, FOX averaged a 2.9 rating, topping the 2.2 rating for NBC in the key demographic. ABC was well back with a 1.3 rating, followed by CBS' 1.1 key demo rating. The CW averaged a 0.3 key demo rating for Tuesday.
