Baseball's All-Star Game draws record-low television rating

NEW YORK (AP) Baseball's All-Star Game has drawn a record-low television rating.

The AL's 6-3 win over the NL in Cincinnati on Tuesday night earned a 6.6 rating and 12 share on Fox. The previous low was a 6.8 in 2012.

Fox said Wednesday that the broadcast averaged 10.9 million viewers. That's down from the 11.3 million for last year's game, Derek Jeter's final All-Star appearance.

Baseball's All-Star Game remains the highest-rated of the four major North American pro sports leagues. It was Fox's best Tuesday prime-time rating since Game 6 of the World Series.

Ratings represent the percentage of homes with televisions tuned to a program, while shares measure the percentage of TVs in use at the time.
