Turner Weekly Ratings - TBS's Coverage of the 2012 Major League Baseball Postseason Is Up 14% Among Total Viewers
Turner spins the numbers for the week of October 1-7.

[via press release from Turner]

NOTE: Because of a technical glitch, TNT's Friday primetime movie was not included in basic cable's weekly program rankings. The movie was also not factored into TNT's primetime and total day deliveries for the week. Turner Research will re-issue this week's ratings charts with complete TNT data once Nielsen is able to resolve the problem.

TBS

TBS's extensive coverage of the 2012 Major League Baseball postseason is up 15% in U.S. household rating and +14% among total viewers, compared with the first three days of the postseason last year. The network's exclusive MLB Postseason telecasts are averaging a 2.3 U.S. household rating (vs. 2.0 rating last year) and 3,628,000 total viewers (vs. 3,171,000 in 2011).

TBS's MLB Postseason coverage is also up across all core demos including:
