NEW YORK (AP) -Television ratings for Major League Baseball's All-Star game fell almost 10 percent from last year.
The American League's 5-4 victory in San Francisco on Tuesday night drew an 8.4 rating and 15 share on Fox, averaging 12.5 million viewers.
Last year's game received a 9.3/16 with an average of 14.4 million viewers.
The rating is the percentage watching a telecast among all homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned in to a broadcast among those households with televisions on at the time. A ratings point represents 1,114,000 households.
The total number of viewers for the game increased, up to 31.4 million from 31.2 million in 2006.
The game and pregame show averaged a 7.9/14, giving Fox the highest-rated night of prime time on any network since its ``American Idol'' finale on May 23.
