The network's NLCS Game 2 telecast yesterday afternoon, Saturday, Oct. 12 - a pitchers' duel won by the Cardinals 1-0 - averaged a 2.2 U.S. HH rating, up 16% over Game 2 of the 2011 NLCS which aired in primetime on TBS and averaged a 1.9 U.S. HH rating. The corresponding 3.4 million total viewers for this year's telecast is a 13% increase over the average of three million total viewers for Game 2 of the 2011 NLCS.

Yesterday afternoon's Game 2 telecast peaked with a 2.9 U.S. HH rating from 6:30-6:45 p.m.

Locally, the telecast generated a 26.2 HH rating in St. Louis and a 7.3 in Los Angeles. Through two games, the 2013 NLCS is averaging a 28.8 HH rating in St. Louis, up 10% from 2011's two-game average of 26.2. In L.A., this year's NLCS is averaging a 10.5 HH rating, an 18% increase from an 8.9 HH rating through two games in 2009, the last time the Dodgers appeared in the LCS.
