TV ratings and Griffey

FSN Florida drew a record 4.5 rating for last night’s Rays-Cubs game, according to a press release from the network. That number means about 81,000 households were tuned into the series finale and it was the highest rating ever for an FSN Florida Rays telecast.

Tuesday’s game on WXPX drew a 5.2 rating and Wednesday’s got a 3.9.

And for those still inexplicably beating the Ken Griffey Jr. drum, here’s another vote on the negative side from the man himself. The Reds are in New York this weekend playing the Yankees and Griffey held court with the media. Asked about the Rays trade talk, Griffey just laughed.

“I don’t know where you guys got that,” he said.

Thanks to my old friend John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer for that tidbit.

It would be higher a rating if we could get them more often in Ft Myers. Unfortunately we are stuck with the Marlins and their blackouts of the Rays.

It would also help if the Rays network games were shown in HD. Also, the broadcast of the games looks dark, but when you see highlighs on ESPN the picture is great. In addition, FOX sports.net is not shown in the Orlando
area unless you have Directv.
