TV viewers turned up in droves to pay #RE2PECT
Derek Jeter went 2-2 in Tuesday's Major League Baseball All-Star Game — his final one — delivering a win for the American League and for Fox.
According to the overnight data, the game — held in Minneapolis — scored an 8.0 rating/14 share. That number is even with last year's exhibition, which took place at the New York Mets’ CitiField, and better than 2012's overnight rating.
We'll be update with more up-to-date numbers when they're available, but Fox's position at No. 1 in ratings and viewers is secure. Due to the nature of live sports, Fox's fast nationals are subject to change.
