All-Star Ratings Were Down. Or Possibly Up.

According to the article "Ratings down for MLB All-Star Game on FOX," ratings for Tuesday's All-Star Game were up compared to last year.

... the total audience that watched any portion of the contest was 27.7 million, which was 7 percent higher than last year.

Wait, but you said...

Well, maybe the total was higher, but the share or something was lower?

The telecast drew an 8.1 metered market rating according to data from Nielsen, representing a +3 percent increase over the 7.9 from last year's game in Phoenix... Among the markets seeing the biggest increase in ratings over last year were Detroit (+50 percent), Washington (+36 percent), Los Angeles (+27 percent) and Dallas (+27 percent).

So what I hear you saying is that the ratings were way, way down. Okay, I get it now.
