ESPN Sunday Night Baseball: Yankees-Red Sox Delivers Highest-Rated Telecast of 2013

The August 18 edition of ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell, in which the New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 9-6 in an action-packed game, delivered a 2.5 overnight rating, according to Nielsen. This marks the highest-rated Sunday Night Baseball telecast on ESPN of the 2013 season. Additionally, the 2.5 rating is up 25 percent from a 2.0 for last year’s comparable Sunday Night Baseball telecast, which was also a Yankees-Red Sox game (8/19/12).

Upcoming Sunday Night Baseball schedule

Aug. 25
Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers
Sept. 1
New York Mets at Washington Nationals
Sept. 8
Los Angeles Dodgers at Cincinnati Reds
Sept. 15
New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox

    Yep, we all hate A-Rod and love to see him get “beaned.”

    I still don’t know why ESPN would decide to televise the Nationals-Mets on Sept 1. These are 2 teams out of playoff contention.

  • Joseph

    Look for the September 8th “Sunday Night Baseball” telecast to be changed to Boston at New York Yankees.

    With the ratings that those two teams got last night (August 18th), ESPN would be foolish not to make the change!

    September schedule already? I hope the Red Sox are doing well this season.

    Already? It’s only two weeks away…

    September 1st should be changed. Pirates and Cardinals face that day… good inter-division match up. Also, Rays vs. Athletics. Both vying for a Wild Card spot while also in striking distance for their division.

    No surprise that Yankees-Red Sox would give ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball its’s highest rating. The Alex Rodriguez hatefest only helped the rating even more. ESPN , consideing how much they follow Alex Rodriguez’s every move should give him a show on the network. If Stephen A. Smith can get airtime why Alex R?
