The average audience of 2,396,000 million households for Sunday's Boston Red Sox - New York Yankees game makes it the third most-viewed telecast ever in the history of ESPN2. The Red Sox - Yankees telecast also represents the largest average household audience for any telecast on ESPN2 since October 2003 when Major League Baseball Division Series coverage delivered the largest average audiences ever in the network's history.

The record-setting rating performance on ESPN2 was generated despite the game being blacked-out throughout the home territories of the Yankees and Red Sox, including the metered markets Boston, New York, Hartford and Providence, where coverage on YES, WSBK and NESN combined for an additional 1,508,628 million households. In New York, the game posted an 11.6/17 (873,330 homes) on YES, which is the highest rating ever for a telecast on the network. In Boston, the game registered a 17.6/26 on WSBK (427,786 homes) and the easily beat all broadcast competition in the market. In Providence, the game posted a 12.4/18 on NESN (80,699 homes), and in Hartford it registered a 7.6/12 (78,356 homes) on YES and a 4.7/7 on NESN (48,457 homes).

Man, I certainly refuse to see that movie. Jimmy Fallon is just about the unfunniest (if that's a word) person in the world. And I've definitely had more of the Red Sox than I can handle...

Fenway you seem like a good guy , but are you home sick or something? You sure do post quite a bit about Boston. With ESPN and Gammons I pretty much get more than I need about Beantown.

I know I don't have to read or respond to your post but we could almost have another section dedicated to Boston with the amount of your postings.

Prime time opening night game featuring the world series champs. ESPN has always treated their home teams well, creating the BE conference and the non-cathlolic basketball programs out of pure mud. And the bosox are no exception - top analyst a 30 year bosox season-ticket holder, last seen celebrating the WS victory, completely piercing any strain of objectivity that network might purport to present.

Fenway, you seem to be a good guy, but understand that we don't care about the Red Sox. We damn sure don't care about the Yankees. You want to talk White Sox? You're in the right place. Don't try to turn this into a Boston board.

What is 2,396,000 million? Isn't that like... 2,396,000,000,000,000? 2 trillion? I think Red Sox and Yankee fans are just stroking themselves if they think that many people give a ****.
