Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star Game on Fox drew a 6.2 overnight rating, a record low overnight. Last year’s game drew a 6.5 overnight, same as 2017, and the previous record low came in 2016, when the game in San Diego drew a 6.2 overnight.
Fox is just happy they won the night.
Overnights for the All-Star Game have cratered over the last decade. Paulsen’s incredibly useful library of data from the last 20 years over at Sports Media Watchreveals that overnights for the MLB ASG have been steadily declining over the last 20 years, and over the last ten, overnights have been sheared by more than 40%, from an 11.0 back in 2008 to last night’s 6.2.
