Derek Jeter brings the masses

On to Derek Jeter: MLB Network’s national telecast of Jeter’s final home game on Thursday ranked as the most-watched regular season game in its history with 837,000 viewers with the contest not shown in the home New York and Baltimore markets. The channel’s telecast peaked with 1.6 million viewers in the 10:15-10:30p quarterhour. On deck, MLB Network carries two exclusive NLDS telecasts nationwide on Saturday, October 4 and Monday, October 6.

Speaking of Jeter’s last home game, the Orioles/Yankees matchup handed YES Network with its most-viewed game telecast ever, averaging 1.25 million viewers in the New York DMA according to Nielsen via a 10.84 average TV Household rating.

Continuing the Jeter theme, FOX Sports 1 offers fans a special program, Derek Jeter: A Night 2 Remember, which will serve as “a cinematic journey through his final home game as a New York Yankee.” The program was produced by Major League Baseball Productions and FOX Sports Originals and airs tonight at 7:30p, offering an in-depth look at Jeter at Yankee Stadium, and along with elements from YES Network’s extensive coverage and that of MLB Network.
