Last Night’s Game Was Highest Rated Phillies Game in Network’s History


PHILADELPHIA- (September 21, 2010) – Comcast SportsNet, Philadelphia’s home for comprehensive sports coverage, has set a new ratings benchmark last night with the Phillies 3-1 win over the Braves. Last night’s game delivered a 14.5 rating (431,400 households) making it the highest-rated regular season game in Comcast SportsNet’s Phillies history. The Phillies game, which beat out Monday Night Football, peaked at an 18.9 rating (562,300 households.)

  1. Once again ANOTHER cut and paste job from Nachman.

    Laura, please try and do something more meaningful than this. As indicated the other day, these certaintly do NOT enhance your credibility.

    Your readers demand more.

    I am sure you have other things on your plate. But these sorts of entries provide very little

  2. Fortunately, with satellite technology I enjoyed watching this particular game but NOT on CSN in the Philly DMA. Watched the Braves TV feed which was entertaining to hear the visiting team’s point of view.

  3. Thanks for posting Phillies ratings … very interesting data.

    Why doesn’t WCAU broadcast its play by play instead of perhaps 30 seconds delayed. We could have the choice of turning off the Phils’ TV team.

  4. Wacky Jack,

    Let’s see your column and what you can do! It’s so easy to criticize from your computer screen and you do it alot here. Don’t you have anything better to do than complain? If you don’t like it, don’t read it, it’s that simple. But don’t hide behind the anonimity of the internet. Let’s see what YOU can write. If you can’t, shut the hell up and go somewhere else..get a life!

  5. Hey Jason – Chill out. This is an open forum. I am providing my opinion here. Nobody is getting killed in the line of duty. Nobody is getting an eye poked out. I respect your opinion, but perhaps you should do the same of others.
