Fox Sports San Diego sets Opening Day ratings record

Denis Poroy

Fox Sports San Diego announced today that they scored their highest ratings ever for an Opening Day broadcast.  They set the record with a 4.03 household rating, which  is 147% hire than last year's Opening Day.

Not bad considering that ESPN snaked the first game of the season for its nationally televised Sunday Night Game.

The increase is no doubt due to the hard work of the FSSD staff but also to Time Warner Cable agreeing to carry the channel during the offseason. Now in theory just about every San Diego County resident is capable of watching their hometown Padres on cable or with a satellite provider for the first time ever.

Last year four of the Top 10 most watched games of the season were against the Dodgers.  The 4.03 rating would have ranked 8th among those games.

With Time Warner Cable finally on board I think FSSD can expect to set new ratings records quite easily from here on out as long as the Padres don't start to suck.
