NEW YORK - The All-Star game's television ratings increased from last year.
The first nine innings of Tuesday night's 15-inning marathon on Fox drew a 9.3 fast national rating and 16 share, the network said yesterday. That's up 11 percent from the 8.4/15 in 2007.
Nielsen issued separate ratings for the regulation portion of the game and the extra innings. Innings 10 through 15 earned a 7.5/18.
The rating is the percentage of those watching a program among homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned into the broadcast among those households with TVs on at the time.
