Fox Looking to Dump Division Series

Fox is looking to ditch its rights to air Major League Baseball's Division Series, presumably because of the ratings vortex it creates.

Ad inventory is harder to selll for the first round of the playoffs, as ratings tend to increase for the League Championship Series and World Series.

Fox hopes it can save tens of millions of sheckels by dropping the Divisional Series games. ESPN/ABC and OLN are two likely partners to assume the rights to the games.

1 other geekspeak:

  • I hope that if ABC or any over the air network gets some games, they also get some regular season contests. It was silly back when NBC only had the playoffs and the rotating All Star Game / World Series...
