TBS

Propelled by the success of the 2013 Major League Baseball Postseason, TBS ranked as basic cable's #1 network in primetime for the week among total viewers and adults 18-49. The network's MLB Postseason coverage scored eight of basic cable's Top 25 most-watched programs for the week, including four games that ranked among the Top 10.

TBS's exclusive presentation of the National League Championship Series has averaged a 3.0 U.S. HH rating and 4.7 million total viewers through the first two games. Compared to the first two games of the 2011 NLCS (the last time TBS aired the series), this year's NLCS is showing increases of +50% in U.S. HH rating (vs. 2.0 in 2011) and +47% in total viewers (vs. 3.2 million in 2011).

Through the completion of the MLB Division Series (18 live game telecasts), TBS's coverage averaged 3.9 million viewers, an increase of +6% over the 3.5 million viewers who tuned in last year. The corresponding 2.5 U.S. HH rating grew by +4% over the 2.4 U.S. HH rating for last year's Division Series.

Five games airing on TBS during the Wild Card and League Division Series ranked among cable's Top 10 programs for Oct. 1-10:

- Pittsburgh vs. St. Louis, NLDS Game 5 - 6.1 million viewers

- Detroit vs. Oakland, ALDS Game 5 - 5.5 million viewers

- Boston vs. Tampa Bay, ALDS Game 4 - 5.2 million viewers

- Tampa Bay vs. Cleveland, American League Wild Card Game - 4.7 million viewers

- Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati, National League Wild Card Game - 4.6 million viewers

MLB Postseason growth is also driving overall monthly growth for TBS, which is enjoying a +12% increase among total viewers in primetime compared to October 2012. In addition, TBS currently ranks as basic cable's #1 network in primetime delivery of total viewers and all key adult demos for the month of October.

TBS's success last week extended beyond its baseball coverage to include the network's telecasts of The Big Bang Theory. The enormously popular series delivered 13 of basic cable's Top 15 sitcom telecasts for the week among total viewers and adults 18-49.
