Major League Baseball ratings: Yankees rally gives TBS huge Game 1 rating

"The New York Yankees' stunning comeback against the Texas Rangers proved to be a hot Nielsen ticket, as TBS recorded cable's top performance ever with the first game of a League Championship Series," Mike Reynolds writes, adding, "The Bronx Bombers' 6-5 win over the home team scored a 5.0 U.S. household rating and 8.11 million viewers in the initial contest of the American League Championship Series, according to Nielsen data. TBS's Oct. 15 telecast registered a nine percent advance over the 4.6 rating for the initial contest of the 2008 ALCS between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays."
