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.
