Banner weekend for the tube. Friday night’s WPHL telecast drew a season-high 8.8 rating for that station, a figure that was surpassed by Sunday’s. 9.1.
Saturday’s FOX telecast was the third for the Phillies. It drew a 6.9 rating, much better than the previous FOX games (Braves and Mets).
Then, last night drew an 8.6 for Comcast SportsNet, the highest number for a cable game this season.
Season’s best rating remains the opener, Sunday night on ESPN, April 5, a 10.4 rating.
Fans continue to pour into Citizens Bank Park. Everywhere the Phillies go on the road, Phillies fans come out in big numbers. Sunday’s game at Yankee Stadium resembled a home game. Home average is 43,208; road, 31,111.
