2013 NL Wild Card Game - Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh - Up 15% vs. 2012

Elimination Game Generates Record-Setting 33.7 DMA HH Rating in Pittsburgh

TBS' exclusive coverage of the 2013 National League Wild Card Game - with the Pittsburgh Pirates defeating the Cincinnati Reds 6-2 to advance to the MLB Division Series - generated 4.6 million total viewers and a 3.0 U.S. HH rating, based on Nielsen Fast Nationals.

Last night's TBS telecast (8-11:32 p.m. ET) won the night across all cable networks among total viewers. The telecast peaked with a 3.5 U.S. HH rating from 9:30-9:45 p.m.

Additionally, the telecast delivered a 33.7 DMA HH rating in Pittsburgh to become the highest-rated MLB game ever on record in the market. Cincinnati, the second highest-rated local market, recorded a 16.6 rating.
