|MLB Division Series TV Ratings Up This Year
|ATLANTA (AP) -- Television ratings for baseball's division series were up from last season.
The 13 games on TBS averaged a 3.1 rating, up 11 percent from last year. TBS said Tuesday it had its most-viewed week in the 33-year history of the network.
The playoff return of the New York Yankees and their large market and national appeal helped boost the ratings. New York's three-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins averaged a 4.2 rating.
