Maury Brown has a super-interesting post on Forbes that lists the local television ratings for each of the major league teams (except the Dodgers and Astros, which have cable-system-carrying issues). Unsurprisingly, if you look at raw viewer numbers, the Yankees are #1 with an average of 251,000 people watching each game. But given the size of the New York market, that places them merely in the middle of the pack when it comes to the average household rating. #2 in viewers and #1 in rating — to my surprise — is the Tigers, with 156,000 average viewers.
Some quick research tells me that there are only 7 people currently living in Detroit.
So that’s a lot.
Marlins, Angels, and White Sox fans may not want to bother checking out the link, although I’m guessing none of you are reading this either.
